Answer
Prashant:

  This question is TOO ''GENERIC'' AND can cover too many genre's of music.. OPera music has hugely long arias and songs, (solo and duets) a 'MEDLEY '' of songs always covers long amounts of time... so the LONGEST DURATION IN what category would be the question..
   As far as I know, this is not a question that gets the attention of statistics on ''non stop english singing music''
   Maybe other countries might have that as a POINT OF INTEREST,, but since there are so many areas of musical interest here, it would have to be narrowed down...

    Music is not composed or performed with the INTENTION OF BEING the longest in duration , like makingi a building being the tallest, in the city, or a runner being the fastest in a race..

    Thanks for your question, I do wish you success in your search for this answer..

My father was a school music teacher, and I have written three volumes for teaching beginning string players, taking them from scratch to high school level. I have performed in a local production of Music Man (musical) with celebrities John Davidson/Susan Watson and have my masters degree in education. I retired from the classroom in 2004 with 38 yrs. experience-now still substituting for music- and writing arr. for my cello trio(with two audio cd's and one dvd of a performance)http://cellosound.blogspot.com I have directed church choirs and am principal cellist in our local community orchestra. I really love to arrange music for the groups I perform in and sing and have music in my life every day. A day without music, is a mistake, like having a day without sunshine.
