Sacred Mass Music Recordings

Sacred music is defined as the music written for use in religious ceremonies, for religious motives, or under religious influence. One of the most significant examples of religious music is the Mass, a form of composition that sets to music the invariable portions of the liturgy (Catholic, Anglican, or Lutheran). Masses can be written for choir with or without instrumental accompaniment, with some masses conceived as choral-orchestral concert pieces.
