I'd like to start collection of sacred music recordings and I don't know where to start. There are a few lists of "essential recordings" out there on a web, but I'd like to hear from the OC.net community for recommendations.

What I mean by sacred music is music used liturgically in a historical Church.

Choral works with instrumental accompaniment by major composers (Brahms, Mozart, Handel) are fine, but I'm most interested in chant, be it Byzantine, Gregorian, Coptic, or what have you.

I am absolutely not interested in contemporary "praise" music.

Any recommended recordings for someone just starting off?

Thanks and God bless.

I am prone to bouts of sarcasm. Please forgive me if my posts have offended you.
