Anthem music

The term 'Anthem' can be both used to describe a specific form of Anglican religious music, or more generally, a composition intended as a rallying symbol for a distinct group of people (for example, national anthems). Anthems are often solemn yet celebratory pieces, and sometimes a popular piece or march can be considered an anthem. According to the latter definition arises the adjective 'anthemic', referring to any piece which has that celebratory connotation.
