This is a key to understanding the supreme importance of music in the Sufi tradition where God resides in music. In music alone exists formless inner beauty that words and pictures fail to capture THE MYSTICISM OF SOUND AND MUSIC is one of those rare books that brings a wealth of inspiration and knowledge, whether it's read from cover to cover or dipped into randomly. A broad range of topics is treated in the book's chapters, covering themes as diverse as color and sound and memory and the value of repetition.
