Witch Watch: Music is essential to churces, magic

Redford Observer, June 28, 1979
Shakespeare said: "The man that hath no music in himself. Nor is not mov'd with concord of sweet sounds, is fit for treasons, stratagems, and spoils...Let no such man be trusted."

Trust me not then because I could give a fark about music these days. It mostly grates against the last nerve of my consciousness though I will listen on occasion with some derisive pleasure. But this isn't about me.
Gundella believed in the power of music as well. In this article she gives a brief history and importance of "the mediator between the spiritual and sensual lives." Music being the greatest magic.

With that she pays homage to music teachers who she calls paragons of virtue. While I would grant a select few that honor, as a blanket statement I will mostly disagree with her assessment.
