Religious music

A lot of music has been composed to complement religion. Many forms of traditional music have been adapted to fit religion. Johann Sebastian Bach, considered one of the most important and influential classical music composers, wrote most of his music for the Christian church[?].

Sometimes religious music changes to fit the times; Contemporary Christian music, for example, uses idioms from various popular music styles, with religious lyrics.
