O Magnum Mysterium

 This is perhaps my favorite Latin Christmas hymn of all time. 

This is the best performance of this piece because it isn't rushed. At 1:40, listen to what might just be the one of the greatest chords in all of sacred music. The base note (tonic) does not resolve and hence the dissonance. Absolute perfection. That's all I can say.
