With a Foreword by Lama Doboom Tulku; xx, 204p., Plts., Gloss., 29 cm.
This collection of essays on sacred music was designed as a lasting commemoration of the World Festival of Sacred Music organized in many places throughout the world to greet the new millennium. H.H. the Dalai Lama chose music as the means to celebrate this momentous event because through music, we "share and nurture the profoundest expression of the human spirit." In these essays - some new and some reprinted - we hear the mingled voices of musicians, scholars and lovers of music exploring a full range of ideas about music and the sacred.
