Essays from THE AMERICAN ORGANIST Magazine
“More than any other human activity, music has the power to reveal who we are and how and what we love in this world.” – Don Saliers (from the Introduction)
Originally written as a series of columns for The American Organist magazine, Themes and Variations is a collection of reflections for music-lovers as well as music-makers.
With each essay, theologian and musician Don Saliers embraces the connection between musical passages and life passages, exploring “the powerful way in which music explores a double journey into the depths of humanity and the mystery of the divine.”
These seventy-plus reflections, filled with personal stories and thoughtful insights, make an excellent basis for conversations about music in churches, classrooms, or among friends.
