Background

A description of the experience

Rumi

‘Tis said, the pipe and lute that charm our ears
Derive their melody from rolling spheres
We, who are parts of Adam, heard with him
The songs of angels and of seraphim
Our memory, though dull and sad retains
Some echo still of those unearthly strains
Oh music is the meat of all who love
Music uplifts the soul to realms above
The ashes glow, the latent fires increase
We listen and are fed with joy and peace
