What are good choral songs for bass voice?

Handel's "Messiah" has some good bass/baritone arias.

Considering range, which is what young basses like to brag about - There are many traditional spirituals that flatter the Basses - Ezekiel Saw the Wheel has that low Eb. Heck, lots of Motown had low vocal bad parts! Tons of Russian literature - usually far too low for students. My adult son is a choral conductor and professional basso - he gets calls for Russian things in which there is a 3 ledger line Ab. There was You tube challenge last year that he scorned - because they were using an edition that was transposed up a half step from the original! Way to cheat - no thanks! So if you are HS our even college choral singer, you will often see things down to a G or F. As you proceed into more diverse genres - expect to add a fourth or fifth below that. Big Russian works? Two ledger line C - or lower.
