Music and liturgy are closely associated. Music is one of the finest of the fine arts. Pope John XXIII calls it as ‘the most spiritual of the fine arts’. It is the best and most vital expression of man’s soul. It leads us to the edge of the infinite and lets us for a moment’s gaze into that. Great composers like Back and Beethoven were able to have spiritual ecstasies and a glimpse of the divine realities through their music. Tagore had the realization of God through his music and poetry. His “geetanjali” verses bear witness to it. Music brings elegance, grace, gentleness and refinement into person’s life. It transforms the person leading one to an experience of the Divine.
