Art thou troubled, music will calm thee,
Art thou weary, rest shall be thine.
Music, source of all gladness,
Heals thy sadness at her shrine,
Music ever divine.
Music calleth,with voice divine.

-- W.G. Rothery

     Music is the vehicle by which souls, individually examined and explored, speak to the world at large.  Human beings communicating directly with one another through great things speak powerfully and with one voice.

     Music is the binding stuff of community.  Community is nourished by music.  It is the grace of great things.  Without the great things, community is reduced to inter- and intrapersonal relationships that are usually built on outside perceptions rather than the soulfulness of all involved.

Whether you listen or whether you play, music refines your soul.  It is peace, emotion, expression, and the sound of the sacred.

-- Deng Ming-Dao
