The aim and final end of all music should be none other than the glory of God and the refreshment of the soul.

Where there is devotional music, God is always at hand with His gracious presence.

My masters are strange folk with very little care for music in them.

It’s easy to play any musical instrument: all you have to do is touch the right key at the right time and the instrument will play itself.

If I decide to be an idiot, then I’ll be an idiot on my own accord.

Johann Sebastian Bach

And if we look at the works of JS Bach – a benevolent god to which all musicians should offer a prayer to defend themselves against mediocrity – on each page we discover things which we thought were born only yesterday, from delightful arabesques to an overflowing of religious feeling greater than anything we have since discovered. And in his works we will search in vain for anything the least lacking in good taste.

Claude Debussy

Now there is music from which a man can learn something!

Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart
