The nourishment which beauty gives to the soul is essential for the development of Renaissance Personhood. This beauty is pursued through the arts, and requires the pursuit of only the most excellent and uplifting expressions. Only to the extent that the arts awaken the awareness of human suffering and thus the burning desire to alleviate it, may this rule be broken. All forms of art that seek to debase both art and human dignity are inimical to the development of the spirit.

treble clef The music for this page is Tarantelle Op. 16 by Henryk Wieniawski. I chose it because it is something that I got to hear frequently from attending string recitals, and therefore learned to love. This MIDI sequence is from the Classical MIDI Archives, sequenced by E. & A. Chan - by permission.
