    *If a man wants God to hear his prayer quickly, then before he prays for anything else, even his own soul, when he stands and stretches out his hands towards God, he must pray with all his heart for his enemies. Through this action God will hear everything that he asks* -Abba Zeno-

    *Protagoras: "Truth is subjective. What is true for you, and what is true for me, is true for me. Your opinion is true by virtue of its being your opinion."

    *Socrates: "My opinion is: Truth is absolute, not opinion, and that you are in absolute error. Since this is my opinion, then according to your philosophy you must grant that it is true."

    Splendid performance ... Messiaen does take the listener to heights never before experienced ... to have been a parishioner in that parish and to have experienced all that grandeur every week ... oh my - it would have been heavenly for me

    Blessed Krummhorn,

    Ditto on that one dear sir - it would have been very heady for me too.

    Humbly,

    Corno Dolce

    Yes there's really something about Messiaen's music... I remember attending a performance of The Quartet for the End of Time - I've never been so moved by music. The stillness was almost too much to bear...
