A quiet night on a shimmering lake, twinkling stars, a snow-capped peak and an old barn keeping watch; it brought to mind the opening lines of "On Hearing a Symphony of Beethoven," a poem by Edna St. Vincent Millay.
"Sweet sounds, oh, beautiful music, do not cease!
Reject me not into the world again.
With you alone is excellence and peace..."
As for the music - what could be more harmoniously pleasing than the majestic melodies of nature?
