We have fallen into the place
where everything is music.
Stop the words now. Open the window
in the center of your chest,
and let the spirits fly in and out!
--JALĀL AD-DĪN RŪMĪ, 13 th -century, trans. C. Barks
“The combination of Bachgrounder, program notes, the lyrics and the music itself gave such meaning to the experience that it resonated deeply.”
