Music: The Quill of the Soul

Availability: In stock



Music has inspired mankind since time immemorial. Via music we express our yearnings or sing out in joy in times of ecstasy.

"Chassidut teaches that we can identify the character of the country by listening to the songs that we hear in the streets. These songs echo the inner character of the native society." (p. 62)

Chassidic music does far more than merely allow us to express our emotions. It serves to elevate our souls; reaching up to the hidden recesses of the super-conscious and energizing us to live inspired by the breath of faith. Authentic Chassidic niggunim relay our belief in the existential harmony of Creation. Their melodies infuse our mundane lives with a taste of the World to Come.

"The main rectification of society is through music. Mashiach who will achieve that rectification is "a new song." Training the public ear to hear that new song will stimulate the final redemption. "(p. 62)

Whether you are a musician or not, the ideas in this book will inspire you to new levels of musical creativity that will help bring Mashiach "with much music and song."
