Met to compose anthem (5)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

motet

Here is my best explanation:

'anthem' is the definition.

(thesaurus)

'met to compose' is the subsidiary indication.

'compose' indicates an anagram.

'met'+'to'='metto'

'metto' is an anagram of 'motet'.

This clue was last seen in Mirror

(Other definitions for motet that I've seen before include "Sacred vocal work", "Short sacred choral piece", "Church anthem", "Creating sacred piece", "Church choral piece", "Piece for choir", "musical piece", "Unaccompanied choral composition with sacred lyrics", "Word; fixed period" and "Short sacred choral work".)
