From the Paper:

"Music is the soul of language, according to one Max Heindel and throughout history; music has been the definition of communication, human upward mobility and culture, just like many other forms of art. Each generation, every period, and every era is marked by a certain domineering musical genre. Musicians come, shine and go. Some fade out of our memories while others make a lasting impression that outlives them for generations. Few musicians have been able to leave a lasting legacy but one name that is more recognizable to all and sundry is that of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. His impact on music was so forceful and significant that he set a precedence that many have not come close to matching."
