“The Magic of Music”

“Music had always, since his early childhood, shown Skylar the transfiguring power of art. Music possessed a facility for communicating directly with one’s soul and, once in communication, an ability to extract from it a fine and delicate feeling. From this feeling, music could shake off all excrescences and dross, leaving a filament which it then played like one of its own strings. To effect this distillation of soul, music had at its command, on the subtle level: pitch, rhythm, and quality of sound and, on the gross level, the meaning of sung lyrics. At every stage of Skylar’s life, music had served to extract the essence of his emotional-spiritual condition, highlight it for clear inner viewing, and exalt it so as to reveal its divine nature.”
