Retuning the world
May 16, 2007

From a sermon by John Donne: “God made this whole world in such an uniformity, such a correspondency, such a concinnity of parts that it was an instrument, perfectly in tune: we may say, the trebles, the highest strings, were disordered first; the best understandings, angels and men, put this instrument out of tune. God rectified all again, by putting in a new string, semen mulieris , the seed of the woman, the Messias: And onely by sounding that string in your ears, become we musicum carmen , true musick, true harmony, true peace to you.”
