Well. Kinda. The aristocracy and high clergy funded those artists vs now where laity and unsophisticated listeners fund music. Ex: pop/rap/rock.

The shift is more consumer oriented than religious. Unless you count the artists who sold theirs souls to the dark side.

It truly is, Bach famously said all his music was written to glorify God.

Came here to say the same. You can tell how much love for God went into every work he produced.

It shows up in everything you do.

1 Corinthians 10:31

“Whether therefore ye eat, or drink, or whatsoever ye do, do all to the glory of God.”

Yes, and even rhythm n blues, rock n roll, soul, and the whole of the 20th century canon clearly have their roots in the church musical traditions

I'm not even specifically religious, and I can say for sure that truly great pieces of music have a transcendental sort of feel. It'd be pretty easy to make the case for music being part of the divine aspect of humanity.

It's more modern, and I don't know the religious affiliation of its composer, but this one comes to mind.
