Apple Music is available for Windows via iTunes 12.2 or later. However, iTunes 12.1.3 is the latest version of iTunes supported for Windows XP and Vista. This means that you cannot find Apple Music on Windows XP via iTunes, as you need Windows 7 or newer for Apple Music support.
If you eager to enjoy millions of streaming songs from Apple Music on your Windows XP, you have to download Apple Music songs on a Windows 7/8/10 computer or a Mac.
What you need to bear in mind is that even if you download all Apple Music tracks from Windows/7/8/10 and copy them to your Windows XP computer, you cannot play them directly. That's all because Apple Music songs are DRM-protected.
