|The Purpose of Music||Home|
The highest purpose of music is for worshiping the Creator of the universe.
While music is very often used for other purposes, God created humans with the ability to compose, play and enjoy music so that we can worship Him with songs. God created the universe, and God is deserving of our musical worship.
Music with a purpose...
|In 1750, German composer Johann Sebastian Bach died. He was considered the "master of masters," combining the tradition of Baroque music with harmonic innovations. The majority of his works are religious, including "Passion According to St. Matthew," and "Jesus, Meine Freude" (Jesus, My Joy!). In expressing his conviction on the purpose of music, Bach asserted: "The aim and final end of all music should be none other than the glory of God and the refreshment of the soul. If heed is not paid to this, it is not true music but a diabolical bawling and twanging."|
