Music is a moral law.  It gives a soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination, a charm to sadness and life to everything.  Fine music is the essence of order and leads to all that is just and good, of which it is the invisible, but nevertheless dazzling, passionate and eternal form.
