Background

A description of the experience

Joscelyn Godwin- Harmonies of Heaven and Earth

The writings of the Jewish Kabbalah contain a vision of a harmonious universe in which 'not only the angels sing, the stars, the spheres, the merkavah [chariot throne] and the beasts, the trees in the Garden of Eden and their perfumes, indeed the whole universe sings before God'

 Although this source says that only Moses and Joshua could hear such music, in later Kabbalistic schools and especially in Hasidism, the privilege extended to the zaddiks, or living spiritual masters.
