ImagetextMusica humana, das ist die Harmonie des Mikrokosmos, die sich im Verhältnis zwischen Körper und Seele, auch zwischen “geistigen und seelischen Kräften” äußert. In Anwendung pythagoreischer und platonischer Gedanken baut die Seele auf konsonierenden Zahlen auf und kann durch Musik ethisch beeinflußt werden. (Boethius)

Cantare amantis est. (Augustinus)

Qui bene cantat, bis orat. (Augustinus)

Muusikas kätkeb midagi muud kui vaid lihalik ja mööduv mõnu, temas on igavese hüve juur. (Augustinus)

Sacred music should be characterized by liturgical values of higher level: sanctity, perfection of form that spontaneously give birth to its second feature – universality. (Pius X)

Man hatte nähmlich bemerkt, das die fünf Finger der menschlichen Hand genau so viele Glieder zählten, als das System Guidos, vom großen G bis zum zweigestrichenen d gerechnet, Töne umfaßte. (Emil Naumann)
