“Il velo sottile. Il mistero della musica”
(The Subtle Veil. The Mystery of Music)


“… in many ways music has prevented  a human being from giving up. At times it has prevented him from dying all together. At times, it has even made him find new life,  leading him to unimagined heights.” 

From the preface by Pierangelo Sequeri

 

May 24, 2012 San Prisco (Caserta) saw the first presentation of the book by  Marie Thérèse Henderson, “Il velo sottile. Il mistero della musica.” Along with the author, there were other speakers: Renata Maione, professor of History and Philosophy of Music at the Conservatory of Naples, and Paolo Saturno, professor of History and Philosophy of Music at the Conservatory of Salerno.

THE BOOK – An interweaving of sounds and silence, of times and eternity, of rules and freedom: intangible and ungraspable, is in relationship with the Mystery. Starting from such a relationship, the author traces out a journey of reflection that is moved by the observation of experiences, in which music acts within people and on the relationship between them. She then proceeds, pausing to examine the elements of the musical discourse so as to made its relational nature emerge, approaches a synthetic back-look at the history of music and concludes by proposing an original thought on the music that has its roots in a spirituality of unity.
