Rolle, Richard - Incendium Amoris - The discordant sound of human music
Type of Spiritual Experience
A description of the experience
Richard Rolle - Incendium Amoris
For the sweet song of the spiritual .... is not in agreement [is in discord] with songs heard with one's ears - the exterior songs, which are played in churches or other places.
[Celestial music] disagrees most of all with the human voice and the outward form that material ears hear; but between angelic melodies [there is] acceptable harmony to those who have heard it.
See to it and try to understand, because it shows you why I fled the honour of singing in the churches of God.
