Music above all…


“God has given us music so that above all it can lead us upwards.

Music unites all qualities: it can exalt us, divert us, cheer us up,

or break the hardest of hearts with the softest of its melancholy tones.

But its principal task is to lead our thoughts to higher things,

to elevate, even to make us tremble…

The musical art often speaks in sounds more penetrating than the words of poetry,

and takes hold of the most hidden crevices of the heart…

Song elevates our being and leads us to the good and the true.

If, however, music serves only as a diversion or as a kind of vain ostentation it is sinful and harmful.”

~ Friedrich Nietzsche
