Music: An Essence

This post takes us through a journey of Great Sayings on “Music” by great people from around the world. On this journey, we will get an essence of Music. As we begin, we would like to acknowledge one of the greatest sayings of Swami Vivekananda, the great spiritual leader of India, who said “Music is the highest form of Art, and for those who understand is the highest worship”. tweet

What we provide is an atmosphere of orchestrated pulse which works on people in a subliminal way. Under its influence I’ve seen shy debs and severe dowagers kick off their shoes and raise some wholesome hell.

Music can noble hints impart,
Engender fury, kindle love,
With unsuspected eloquence can move,
And manage all the man with secret art.

All deep things are song. It seems somehow the very central essence of us, song; as if all the rest were but wrappages and hulls!

There’s music in the sighing of a reed;
There’s music in the gushing of a rill;
There’s music in all things, if men had ears:
Their earth is but an echo of the spheres.

~Lord Byron
