The late John Paul II wrote in his Letter to Artists: “Art must make perceptible, and as far as possible attractive, the world of the spirit, of the invisible, of God”
So works of art (music included) serves as a bridge between human experience and the divine mystery of God. From the word “human experience” alone, we see so much diversity and people in various stages in their faith walk.
Similarly, we have been gifted with many forms of music, all of which are capable of being purified by the celebration of the sacred Liturgy.
