Ugh, the Messiah is dull, I really tried to get into it! I like Handel's coronation anthems and Music for the Royal Fireworks.
There's a BBC Orchestra rendition of the Fireworks music on Youtube that is currently my favourite piece of music in any genre. I'm something of an ignoramus when it comes to all forms of music, but Handel seems to have composed so many of my favourites - the Fireworks, Zadok the Priest, the Water music, the Sarabande that Kubrick used so effectively in the film Barry Lyndon...
Other ones I like are Beethoven's Pastoral Symphony, which is used with very sharp irony in Soylent Green, Bach's Air on a G String, Pachelbel's Canon, the Moonlight Sonata... yes, all the tracks you'd find on a That's What I Call Classical Music album.

ROGER FEDERER: Yeah, I remember this one time when I went on a vacation on the Maldives. That was in the year 2001, I think. I went to this spa. I went to walk around with my girlfriend. I walk in, and we want to book a spa. This guy goes, "AHH, I remember you. You beat Sampras. I saw you on TV." That was like, really, how can you remember me? This guy has probably never been off his island and still knows me. I was a little bit shocked. Then I went to play tennis with him because he was actually the tennis teacher. It was nice.
Q. Were you naked at the time in the spa?
ROGER FEDERER: No. It was at the front desk. I didn't walk in naked.
The music was composed by Leone's long-time collaborator, Ennio Morricone. Due to the film's unusually long gestation, Morricone had finished composing most of the soundtrack before many scenes had even been filmed. Some of Morricone's pieces were actually played on set as filming took place (a technique that Leone had used for Once Upon a Time in the West). "Deborah's Theme", considered by many to be the best piece of this soundtrack, was in fact originally written for another film in the 1970s but rejected; Morricone presented the piece to Leone, who was initially reluctant, considering it too similar to Morricone's main title for Once Upon a Time in the West.
