Religious music

Some of the grandest music ever written is on religious themes: one has only to think of the Hallelujah Chorus or Zadok the Priest. Of course, there has also been an awful lot of doggerel, where words or tune or both have been tacky and horrible, but fortunately nearly all of these have sunk rapidly and without trace.

In this section of our site we want to have some of the really great hymns, songs and other religious music. I hope you enjoy our selection.
