I don’t understand how music works its magic in the soul. But I know it does. Quiet songs, restful and full of comfort, soothe anxious, burdened emotions. Upbeat tunes energize and restore. Songs of comfort and hope, songs of love and praise, songs of thanksgiving: they all aim to restore balance to a world in need of love.
Numerous studies have shown the various benefits of music. Simply by singing a particular vowel one can affect the functioning of various organs or systems in the body. Amazing! I’m so glad that music is a big part of my life and has made it richer in so many ways. The hills, indeed, are alive with the sound of music.
