The following list of sacred music was contributed by the members of FLUTE. The categories included are: Collections, Descants/Obbligatos, Individual Solo Pieces, and Pieces for Two or More Flutes. The list is not intended to be exhaustive. Only music that is scored specifically for flute is included. Sacred vocal works that can be played on flute and scores for "C instruments" are not listed, for example.
