Help identify Beethoven music

This is a documentary on Beethoven:

What is the song that starts playing at 8:30 mark?

Wow, that's tougher than i thought.
It could be something from Missa Solemnis. I wish I could have looked it up by hummng it like that iPhone app.

Good call. It's from an instrumental section of the Sanctus from Beethoven's Missa Solemnis

It starts at the 4:15 mark of this clip, right after the big choral part:

All written at a time in his life when Beethoven was completely deaf.

Nice work, HUG-H and dhmac. I performed the Missa years ago but would have been hard-pressed to identify it from that excerpt.

And yeah, if only Shazam worked that way.

Beautiful stuff! I need to hear the piece again, it's been a while!
And thanks for that clip of Lenny B. conducting! That's awesome!
