I think this forum is way too downbeat, so I've decided to post some things which even the most hardened atheist would have to concede are positive contributions of religion (I've heard Christopher Hitchens say he couldn't live without religious music). The word "religion" shouldn't just provoke harsh feelings and controversy, but should call to mind to some of the greatest cultural and artistic achievements in history.

A few samples, mostly masterpieces of renaissance polyphony:

Allegri - Miserere (Psalm 51):

Link


Solemn High Tridentine Mass with Gregorian Chant and Sacred Polyphony:

Link


Palestrina - Sicut Cervus Desiderat:

Link


Victoria - O Magnum Mysterium:

Link


John Taverner - Dum Transisset Sabbatum


Link


Dominus Dixit Ad Me (Psalm 2) - Gregorian Chant:

Link


Feel free to post your own, or even some magnificent achievements in atheist art . :roll:
