Okay music majors (former and present) who love Baroque music - this was an exciting find for me today while listening to KDFC. Domenico Zipoli - probably the most significant Jesuit composer. I heard Gordon Hunt (oboist) perform Zipoli's Elevazione - hauntingly beautiful. There are no undiscovered masterpieces, but it is wonderful to hear a composer that I was not aware of before, and of such ethereal quality. He has many other works too, viewable on iTunes.
