The whole Requiem is special, of course, but people will still be falling in love with that particular piece hundreds and thousands of years from now. The amount of emotion packed into those few minutes cannot be found in anything else. This is very cliched, but I want it played at my funeral when I die.
I think the Lacrimosa, Faure's Pavane and Holst's Jupiter are the only classical peices that have ever made me come close to tears. Personally, I'd want that trio to be played at my funeral. This has become a very morbid thread.

No, I just love violins and sweeping soundscapes.

I think the 2nd movement of Beethoven's 7th symphony is one of the greatest works of orchestral music. Such a simple structure and motif, but so, so beautiful.

My favorite choral work is probably Brahms' German Requiem (if you haven't heard it, I highly recommend it, cori!). In college I was lucky enough to be in the choir for a performance of it. Such a beautiful work. All these years later I still remember the lyrics whenever I listen to it (which is surprising considering it's in German! ).

Add that to the list of great uses of classical in film.
