Voices Together

The voice of the LORD is over the waters; Psalm 29:3-5

The voice of the LORD is over the waters; The God of glory thunders; The LORD is over many waters. The voice of the LORD is powerful; The voice of the LORD is full of majesty. The voice of the LORD breaks the cedars, Yes, the LORD splinters the cedars of Lebanon.

I have been listening to a piece of music; I think the title was A Cello Prelude in b-minor, majestic and very expressive. When it finished, I picked up my laptop and read this passage preparatory to writing tomorrow's Voices Together column. What a pair.

The composer was using the voice of the cello to describe in music as David was using words for the same purpose. In realty, I don't know who the composer was and I am describing its impact on me. Perhaps the best statement is that any of man's attempts to use the forms of communication available to him are at best inadequate. But we must use them!

PS: I need to instruct Pandora to find more solo cello pieces for me. I wonder if the software is up to the challenge.
