a quiet place to think about music

Among the many forms in which human spirit has tried to express its innermost yearnings and perceptions, music is perhaps the most universal.

It symbolizes the yearning for harmony, with oneself and others, with nature and the spiritual and the sacred within us and around us.

There is something in music that transcends and unites. This is evident in the sacred music of every community - music that expresses the universal yearning that is shared by people all over the globe.
