If music be the food of love .......  (A video of some quotes about music - 1 min 50 secs)


A prayer for World Music Day

Thank you for the music all around us.

Each morning we hear it from the moment we open our ears;

the low notes of wind around the eaves

the whoosh of water as it comes from the tap

the glug glug as it drains

the throaty whistle of the boiling kettle

the metallic tap of the spoon against the cup

the jazz percussion of our feet on the steps.

The sounds of our day,

so familiar we hardly pay attention.


We pray for all who sing a sad song today;

the grieving, the lonely, the lost.

We pray especially for those who have lost their voice

and feel silenced or oppressed.

Thank you for your songs, love songs,

which we are invited to sing.


Help us to find our own voice and instruments

with which we might make music to enrich the world;

music to console, encourage, inspire and bring joy!


We pray this in the name of the Father,

and of the Son,

and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.
