Classical Music > Choral-Secular

This category includes cantatas and oratorios with secular or religious themes, frequently composed to celebrate great events but also for entertainment. Among the most popular secular oratorios are Haydn’s The Seasons, while his The Creation, also intended for concert performance, treats a sacred subject. Handel’s oratorios, many with sacred themes, are also among the most frequently performed.
