    The Gorecki Totus tuus is stunning imo.

    'O magnum mysterium' by morten lauridsen is equally lovely.

    I'm really into music by Vasks just now. I love Distant Light and Plainscapes It's very different but just magical! For me anyway

    As far as orchestral goes then try Nielsen symphonies (he died in 1930s) or some Delius - I'd recommend 'sea drift'.

    What about Toru Takemitsu? Although not a Western composer, he was heavily influenced by Messiaen (also great!) and is pobably the most well known of Japanese composers.
