In the fallen state of consciousness, each human being functions in disregard of the Song of Life that is going on in others.  There is no harmony, no direction, no arrangement.  You are like the random notes of an orchestra before the conductor unifies the instruments in symphony.  The Grand Conductor is calling everyone to attention . . .

Music is God's best gift to man, the only art of heaven given to earth, the only art of earth we take to heaven.
