Sacred music was primarily vocal.

This was mostly due to the connection of instruments to pagan rituals.

Nevertheless, instruments did become more important over the span of the medieval period.

The most important instrument of sacred music in the medieval period is the organ.

Early organs are not like modern ones, though they were loud, they were much more difficult to operate and required a great deal of physical strength.
