No, I don't know about that. But the first metronome was patented in 1815, and Beethoven wrote his Mass in C in 1807, so I don't think he had one yet. I suppose we can assume that the earliest metronomes were not that accurate or reliable.

"Black Gospel" and, if you want 19th-century or early-20th-century music, "Negro Spiritual" are going to get you the best results.

Why don't you search on specific performing artists or composers in the specific genre you are looking for, and once you find some, then try to widen the search into artists or composers with a similar style?

comment Seperate gospel music from generic religious / worship music
What do you mean by "searching"? Where are you doing your searching? What are you searching for? Are you looking to purchase music recordings, music videos, sheet music, books or documentary films about music history, or something else? Are you looking for recordings you can listen to online for free? Are you just looking for whatever turns up on Google? Are you using a service like Spotify or Pandora? What?

comment What components make military music especially rousing?
Mozart wrote music he called "alla Turca", inspired by the Turkish Janissary military bands that he was exposed to in Austria. Mozart never went to Turkey. I point this out just to illustrate the importance of the cultural context in whatever you are composing.

In that case the question is "what country do the young men live in?" There are different military marching music traditions for every different nation with a military. Play attention to folk melodies from the specific culture and the instruments traditionally used in marching military bands from that culture.
