Music is called the divine art, while all other arts are not so called. We may certainly see God in all arts and in all sciences, but in music alone we see God free from all forms and thoughts.
Every word of poetry forms a picture in our mind. Every piece of art forms itself a picture. Sound alone does not make any object appear before us.
Music inspires not only the soul of the great musician, but every infant, the instant it comes into the world, begins to move its little arms and legs with the rhythm of music. Therefore it is no exaggeration to say that music is the language of beauty, the language of the One whom every living soul has loved. And we can understand that, if we realize and recognize the perfection of all this beauty as God, our Beloved, then it is natural that this music, which we see in art and in the whole universe, should be called the Divine Art.
