Sinking Below the Rest?
A tip o' the hat to my pal Inigo Hicks for bringing to my attention what he suggests could be the "worst piece of classical music ever written," The Peacemakers by Karl Jenkins. Bro. Hicks suggests listening to snippets of the work, which can be found here. Being as there are so many candidates for the distinguished superlative posited by Hicks, all composed within the last forty to fifty years, I withhold judgment, only observing that the work to me sounds like praise music composed by Gustav Mahler at gunpoint.
