Toccata and Fugue in D minor, BWV 565 (not to be confused with a series of German cars), attributed to Johann Sebastian Bach. This is from around 1700 but sounds timeless to me.
I'm using the Nord Stage 2 sampled church organs and I've added some harpsichord to try to give it a little bit different feel. I only play the beginning and the end of the fugue (the middle part is less fun...) Organ (and harpsichord) are not the most expressive instruments - you can't control the volume of each note - yet this piece works so well and is so overwhelmingly beautiful.
Cute story: I remember attending church every Sunday when I was a kid and naively hoping they'd play this piece!
