Man, this is hard! It'd be easier to list the ones I *don't* like! I can say that most were written in the '40s, with the notable exception of Merry Christmas Darling. Though the lyrics to it were written in 1946. Took me 26 years to get a copy of that song! Grr.
Major correction. I should've said most of my favorites were written in the '40s or earlier! Listening to The Messiah and it occurred to me what I'd posted! So very many of the most beautiful songs ever written are hundreds of years old.

Is it all real? Ah, Virginia, in all this world there is nothing else real and abiding.
