Product Overview

The Song That I Am: On the Mystery of Music is a short but full-to-the-brim essay on the decisive role that great music (whether Bach, Tavener,or Gregorian chant) ought to play in the spiritual life. With admirable restraint lisabeth-Paule Labat shares her interiorexperience ofmusic andthus continually opens up fresh vistas through worlds of sound and spirit. With her uncanny gift of language, Labat precisely describes soundings and yearnings of the soulthat many of us glimpse fleetingly. Because only the lover sings (St. Augustine), her final illumination is that the experience of profound music ought to transform us into the beauty that we hear.
