Music goes beyond words, and often beyond thought. It has the power to speak straight to our innermost beings, often healing what nothing else can. As William Congreve said, "Music has charms to soothe a savage breast.” Feeling savage? Let these gorgeous, inspiring compositions soothe you, and create the calm and comfort or inner warmth of spirit we all need to get us through the day.
