The Speech of the Angels

Thoughts on the Theory of Music: A Philosophical Perspective

By Max Stern

Be the first to review this product

Music is well said to be the Speech of the Angels, in fact
nothing among the utterances allowed to man is felt to be
so divine. It brings us near to the infinite…into the eternal
Sea of Light where song leads and inspires us…it was actually
so in Greek, in Roman, in Moslem, most of all in old
Hebrew times...David, king of Judah, a soul inspired by
divine music…was wont to pour himself in song; he, with a
seers eye and heart, discerned the godlike amid the human,
struck tones that were an echo of the sphere harmonies and
are still felt to be such.
Thomas Carlyle, from “On Music and Morality”
