As the director of a church choir that sings sacred polyphony and chant, I could not agree more with this passage. And I love this painting. Thank you for putting the two of them together.
This was so beautiful! I loved how the picture and the quote blended together-it was magnificent.
Music - "the native tongue of heaven". Lovely. This means a bit more to me than it might to most people. I am deaf, however I have been given the gift of hearing through a cochlear implant. For the first 6 months I could not tolerate the sound of music at all. Now I am beginning to savor it. First came the harp and now the piano. Ah yes, a bit of heaven, for sure! I love the painting too.
