Need music references from major religious texts

I’m planning a music service at the local UU church. VeryCoolSpouse is a member (I don’t attend, myself) and has complained about the quality of the music on more than one occasion. I’m gonna show 'em what real music is like. :slight_smile:

I’ve got some bible stuff

But I’d like to add some references from other cultures with which I am, sadly, less familiar. Buddhist texts, Koran, whatever…you find it, I’ll use it.

The Kitab-i-Aqdas, the Holy book of the Baha’i faith says: “We verily have made music as a ladder for your souls, a means whereby they may be lifted up to the realms on high.”
