Religious music (also sacred music) is any type of music that is performed or composed for religious use or through religious influence. It may overlap with ritual music, which is music, sacred or not, performed or composed for or as ritual. The introduction of church organ music is traditionally believed to date from the time of the papacy of Pope Vitalian in the 7th century.
