|St Cecilia by John William Waterhouse|
Here's a prayer about music and musicians from Michael Leunig:
...Let us celebrate and praise all those musicians and composers who give their hands and hearts and voices to the expression of life's mystery and joy.
Who nourish our heart in its yearning.
Who dignify our soul in its struggling.
Who harmonise our grief and gladness.
Who make melody from the fragments of chaos.
Who align our spirit with creation.
Who reveal to us the grace of God.
Who calm us and delight us and set us free to love and forgive.
Let us give thanks and rejoice.
