12. Osanna in Excelsis, Mass in B minor - Bach
It's not a dance, but it's certainly celebratory - one of the most celebratory songs possible, really. Sung by the angels, the text glorifies God in the highest heavens, and bids peace to all people on earth, and Bach's wonderful triple time music fits in beautifully amongst some of the best waltzes. A fitting way to start the new year!
