What makes music spiritual? Choosing music to review
In Kindred Spirit magazine I used to include the strap-line 'Investigating what makes music spiritual...', but on reflection I can see that 'spiritual' is not a good word to choose because it seems to have as many different interpretations as there are people. Plus it's often associated with the word 'religious' and religions, which in my opinion certainly don't have a monopoly on spirituality. So these days I prefer to use the word newness.
When listening to a new CD I ask myself: 'Has this music got a quality of newness about it?'. If it has then it will almost certainly be included for review.
Freshness - even music in a tried and tested genre, like relaxation music for example, can be written, played or recorded with a freshness that makes it come alive.
So if you too are looking for music with 'newness', then hopefully this website will help you sort the 'sweet from the chavs'.
