Since I'm on a Met kick, here's the 2009 release by the Metropolitan Opera Brass.

Some of my favorites on this album are the Hunter's Chorus from Der Freisch├╝tz, Zerbinetta's Aria from Ariadne auf Naxos, and the Opening Of Scene II  in Das Rheingold.

I can't say enough how much I love this group and how much I really think that their opera jobs influence the way they play and approach any music. The long (Looooooong) phrases and singing (yes singing) lines are truly astounding on this album and I can't recommend it highly enough.
