Description: A set piece is a "through-composed setting of a metrical text" (Temperley 1983). "Usually less elaborate than an anthem, the set piece [is] a through-composed setting of a poetic text of more than one stanza" (Crawford 1968). Set pieces usually have metrical text, but anthems usually have text of prose or free verse.
