This category relates to music written for choirs. The tradition of choirs within religious establishments as begun in the middle ages continues to this day, and has provided an enormous wealth of music in a wide variety of forms and styles. Other than these and the choruses employed by opera houses, professional choirs are few, though there are many large amateur choirs.
