On the spiritual and healing properties of music
I absolutely believe in the healing properties of certain music and certain sounds. I haven’t studied this in great depth, but I know it intuitively and also empirically, from my own experience. There is a study cited in the book "Chanting" by Robert Gass in which children who are suffering from cancer in a hospital experience a decrease in stress and a boost in their immune system after they sing songs and participate in music. I would be grateful to know that any music that I have recorded or performed has had that effect. I know that the music of October Project has achieved that from the many, many letters we have received over the years.

You can try it yourself! The Catholic faith is chock-a-block with the stuff.
