“Music is God’s gift to man, the only art of Heaven given to earth, the only art of earth we take to Heaven.” – Walter Savage Landor
Ah, now this is a treasure of a quote. I have never realized before that music really is “…the only art of Heaven given to earth…” We tend to think of Heaven as a representation of perfection. Angles and God(s) inhabit this mystical realm, and only those who are worthy may enter. In the visual representations of these inhabitants, we often see them playing harps or other instruments, and on top of that, there are countless references to singing, song and the effects of the voices of Heaven’s inhabitants throughout the most ancient religious texts. English poet Walter Savage Landor provides this excellent quote about the cycle of the gift of music.
Have a wonderful week full of love, life and music!
