A slight departure today, as perhaps this post might be more appropriately placed under an “Ears to Heart” banner than an “Eyes to Heart” one.
Let’s call it an interlude of divine music.
I’ve been catching up on some blog reading this morning and as I sit here Samuel Barber’s gorgeous Adagio for Strings has started playing on my stereo.
This is one of my favourite pieces of classical music. It invokes feelings of peace and meditation, reflection and introspection, my pulse racing and easing with the ebb and flow of the emotion of time and space and wonder captured in Barber’s creative masterpiece.
It’s one of those epic music compositions that lives deep inside of me, along with the moving trio from Richard Strauss’ Der Rosenkavalier, and Ralph Vaughan Williams’ luscious Fantasia on a Theme of Thomas Tallis.
Hmm … perhaps some music overload, but it’s what I feel this morning. I do hope you’re able to take a moment to sit back and relax so you might enjoy, reflect upon and find some inner peace with this interlude of divine music.
Thanks for visiting.

There’s no ‘explaining’ music, is there? At the physical level it’s just a juxtaposition of many, many vibrations but at some other level… Is there anything that moves the soul as much?
You are so right! Some music can be healing and, I dare say, other music might drive a person to madness. There is no doubt, in my mind at least, that music can have a profound effect on who we are and how we conduct our lives simply because of its ability to move us, perhaps, even on a cellular level. To me it’s a reminder that ultimately what we allow into our lives shapes who we become. The music genres (vibrations) we entertain are every bit as important as the kinds of food we ingest, in my humble opinion. Thus, it is important to choose for oneself wisely 😉 … Thanks for visiting and taking the time to leave a comment. … Be well … Dorothy 🙂
