Music to soothe the savage beast

“The devil, the originator of sorrowful anxieties and restless troubles, flees before the sound of music almost as much as before the Word of God….Music is a gift and grace of God, not an invention of men. Thus it drives out the devil and makes people cheerful. Then one forgets all wrath, impurity, and other devices.”
― Martin Luther

    Hey man, great meeting you this past weekend. I never knew Martin Luther was so radical about music too. That’s amazing especially since he seemed to the man responsible for clearing out the Church of all its iconic symbols including art. I never realized how passionate he was about art too. :) Hope to run into each other soon again!
