Almanac: Julian Bream on the spirit of music

"The spirit of music can reach people who are sensitive enough to receive it in such a way that the experience is a revelation both the spiritual and the mystical. Ideally the performer has a special function, which is to bring the listener to the edge of that experience and to open the doors of this perception in such a way that those who wish to enter can."

Julian Bream (quoted in Tony Palmer, Julian Bream: A Life on the Road)
