“There is…an esotericism in music. One aspect of it is the science of speculative music, which searches out the principles and laws underlying both practical music and its reflections in the cosmos… The other aspect of musical esotericism is the experiential one, driven by the power of practical music over body and soul…
Music, in short, contains all the requisites for a path of spiritual development.”
– Joscelyn Godwin.
I haven’t found a better statement of my philosophy of music and life.
