Michael Drapkin, "Invocation"
Michael Drapkin has a nifty entry about music - Jewish music in particular, that he shares on his blog today:
Last Sunday, January 30, 2005, I asked Rabbi Shmuel Skaist to give an invocation at the Gala Concert of my chamber music group Music Amici. His speech below, whether you are religious or Jewish or not, is a beautiful discussion of music and its timelessness that I found quite moving. Even my wife Suzy, who is very non-religious, thought it was beautiful - the ultimate acid test.
