Peter Grimes by Benjamin Britten( )

Set in a small fishing community on the east coast of England, the story of conflict between an individual and a society that sees him as an outsider
The fairy queen by Henry Purcell( )

25 editions published between 1994 and 2011 in 4 languages and held by 846 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In 'The Fairy Queen,' two artistic geniuses met. The scenario is an adaptation of William Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream; the music is by Henry Purcell, the greatest English composer of his day. The result is one of the first great operas, a dazzling display of music and emotion that has lost none of its power since its premiere in 1692. Much of the music has come to have a life beyond the opera itself: songs such as "The Plaint," "Thrice Happy Lovers" and "Hark! The Echoing air" now regularly grace the concert hall stage, a delight for singers and audiences alike. This studio recording was made with Australia's pre-eminent independent opera company, Pinchgut Opera, in 2003, and is re-released here in deluxe packaging. The cast features the finest Australian singers (Sara Macliver, Sally-Anne Russell and Paul McMahon to name but three) under the direction of Baroque specialist Antony Walker. The period instruments of the Orchestra of the Antipodes provide accompaniment of vibrant colour and immediacy." --

Ein Deutsches Requiem by Johannes Brahms( )

13 editions published between 1991 and 2017 in German and Undetermined and held by 601 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Brahms's Requiem, completed in 1868, draws on the legacy of his forerunners, Heinrich Schütz and Johann Sebastian Bach. In setting texts from the German Bible, it deliberately departs from the models of the Catholic liturgy and imposes a sorrowing yet consolatory meditation on death and the Last Judgment, in the manner of a poignant and grandiose cradle song for the dead
The works of Arnold Schoenberg by Arnold Schoenberg( )

5 editions published in 2009 in German and held by 566 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Missa solemnis by Ludwig van Beethoven( )

7 editions published between 2012 and 2017 in Latin and held by 554 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The performances of the Missa solemnis at the Styriarte Festival in Graz and at the Salzburg Festival in summer 2015 were Nikolaus Harnoncourt's last concerts. After his retirement from the stage later that year, it was Mr. Harnoncourt's express wish that this album, made from the material captured at the Graz concerts and rehearsals, also be his last released recordings. Beethoven's late masterpiece has thus become the final chapter of an unparalleled discography spanning 65 years
