Category Archives: Anthems

Here is a list of all the anthems on my site, in alphabetical order of title.

Anthems are sacred pieces of music, usually no more that 5-7 minutes in length. Motets are similar, so they are also included in this list.

Longer sacred pieces are given the category Cantata.
