The Healing Power of Music

I don't know what I would do without music.  Even when I am feeling my worst there is something in music to make me feel better.  Lately I've been listening to the music of Morten Lauridsen, especially his 'O Magnum Mysterium'.  It is such a beautiful piece of music.  It has several dissonances, in particular one real clash, if you have ever heard this piece of music you will know the clash I am talking about, it is like the flash of silver you get when the sun reflects on a calm sea.  I love the way dissonances are resolved in music, and helps me deal with the dissonances in real life.
