Why We Should Give Thanks for Music (according to Martin Luther)

Standard

“Music is a fair and glorious gift of God.  I would not for the world forego my humble share of music.  Singers are never sorrowful, but are merry, and smile through their troubles in song.  Music makes people kinder, gentler, more staid and reasonable.  I am strongly persuaded that after theology, there is no art that can be placed on a level with music;  besides theology, music is the only art capable of affording peace and joy of the heart … the devil flees before the sound of music almost as much as before the Word of God.”
