God and Music (1782 words)
From the ancient Pythagorean "music of the spheres to the "harmonies of nature" that have guided inquiry through the ages, we have collectively sought the song of nature in the gentle wanderings of celestial bodies and the riotous fulminations of subatomic particles.
Music is as necessary for humankind as it is for birds.
As he spoke thus, accompanying his words with the music of his lyre, the bloodless spirits wept; Tantalus did not catch at the fleeting wave; Ixion's wheel stopped in wonder; the vultures did not peck at the liver [of Tityus]; the Belides rested from their urns, and thou, O Sisyphus, didst sit upon thy stone.
Beyond the Veil: Persian Traditional Music (1596 words)
The music of Iran has changed considerably in the past 25 years, which incidentally is the period of the Islamic Revolution and the establishment of theocracy in Iran.
While the music and culture of the old Persian empire deeply influenced and enriched the life of the Arab countries, musicians themselves were faced with condescension from Islamic society and often persecution from the government.
Musical practices did not have any continuity during long periods of time and one of the most socially comfortable and accepted forms of music was singing the verses of the Quran (Koran) without any instrumental accompaniment.
