Divine Spark in Melody

Last night, I went to see the Detroit Symphony Orchestra play one of my favorite pieces, Beethoven’s 6th, or Pastorale.  The Michigan climate did not mirror the music–the April evening was more like February, complete with snow and blustery winds.  The music, by contrast, brought a warm glow to the hall.  The sublime melodies of Beethoven not only foretold spring and summer days to come, but gave voice, if only briefly, to that spark of Divinity we can touch if we are open to it.
