As a Freethinker, I have almost no interest in music with an overt religious content. There are a few exceptions-- the Hallelujah chorus because of the sheer power and beauty of the singing, Handelian magic. Also Paul Robeson singing Blake's Jerusalem: a combination of Robeson"s massive voice with Blake's fantastic evocative poetry. And also Philip Glass' Hymn to the Sun from Akhnaten,: beautiful, quiet evocation of the gift of the Aten, the visible disk of the sun.
