By Richard Elfyn Jones
The continuum of music-what is it, what does it do, how does it do it-has taxed numerous philosophers over recorded time, or even the verb for what it does (express? arouse? evoke? characterize? embody?) meets without common contract. now not continuously is track famous: within the e-book of Ezekiel, the prophet likens the expert musician to an ineffectual preacher. Richard Elfyn Jones brings new rules to the conundrum via taking on sure philosophers no longer frequently brought up in reference to song, specifically Alfred North Whitehead and the classical Greek inspiration of method (as against event), and therefore of approach theology. The publication opens up an unique method of the transcendent and, to many, the sacred caliber heard in tune, drawing either upon experts keen on the numinous (that feeling of awe and charm at the back of non secular adventure) and upon his personal lifelong engagement with track as student, instructor and composer.
