Grand choruses for sticky moments

Nettuno s’onori concludes the first act of Idomeneo and is my favourite Mozart chorus and my favourite bit from that opera (although I’m very fond of everything from there on to the end of Act II). It has a welcome settling effect on me, as if it can concentrate my inner tension and expel it.
