"Voices Not Our Own"

[Original article in German]

THE harmony of beautiful voices blending together gives delight to many, and indeed such performances are usually intended to uplift and refresh the listener. Those who possess a mature understanding of music are able to give a correct estimate of such a performance, while one who lacks this understanding will only partially appreciate it.

Thus, even as a cultivated ear is needed in order to listen intelligently to music, so our hearing must be attuned spiritually to discern the divine voice, unfamiliar to mortal man. This attunement takes place only when the material senses are silenced and spiritual sense holds sway. Egotism and self-will must give place to humility and the recognition of that spiritual selfhood which expresses God.
