I urge everyone to listen to my god Mozart's Exsultate, jubilate, composed when he was only sixteen:

That is great Christian music.

I've often felt the best thing about Xtianity was the music -- not all of it, goodness knows, but some of it.

True, Books, but let's not forget the architecture too.

I agree. Especially the music of one of my other heroes, J. S. Bach.

As your photos so often remind us.  OK, I would agree the architecture and (some) music tie for first place.

Yep.  A large number of classical composer wrote great, Xtian themed music -- or perhaps more accurately, music for Xtian use.

Ye Bach, so we're not limiting it to Catholic,
musicians have been inspired by Jesus
and church paid and musicians need eat.

Give Me Love Give Me Peace On Earth

And about the spectacular architecture of so many religious temples......Absolutely stunning and absolutely miraculous that old world architects and builders....bless the builders, many of whom gave their lives for the cause,.....could and did build such magnificent structures.

When one backs off a few paces from the grandeur, it is clear that we have constructed monuments to mans incredible ego, not as temples for our gods.
