The Spiritual Significance of Music by Justin St. Vincent
This book takes an interesting look at the relationship between music and spirituality. More specifically, it is a compilation of over 100 different interviews with musicians from around the world, different walks of life, and different genres of music.
I personally did not find this book to be very interesting; however, that may be related to my also lack of experience and interest in the nature of music. I like to listen to music, to experience it, but the fundamentals elude me.
For the music lover who has a spiritual background, I believe this book will provide much more interesting and engaging reading. That’s because the interviews reveal a side of musicians that is often not discussed publicly, if for no other reason, the typical outlets for music don’t usually sway direct conversation in the direction of spirituality.
