Hildegard of Bingen (1098-1179) on the importance of singing:

“So sing!
The song of rejoicing softens hard hearts.
It makes tears of godly sorrow flow from them.
Singing summons the Holy Spirit.
Happy praises offered in simplicity and love lead
the faithful to complete harmony, without discord.
Don’t stop singing!”


If you hum or sing or whistle or play an instrument, I’m sure you will agree that most any type of music, especially God music is a help during your daily race through life. Thank God for the gift of music. If you’ve not thought about the spiritual importance of music, try it; you might like it!
