I have been SO EXCITED to get my hands on this book as soon as I saw the annoucement of it’s release. I played the cello my whole adolescent life and have a cello f-hole tattoo on my back because classical music has a special place in my heart.
Thank you so much to Harper Books for sending me a copy in exchange for my honest review.
This book is a devotional for classical music. Every day is a piece of classical music that you can listen to and enjoy. A small written note by Celemency herself is written about each peicec that shows her love of music and wealth of knowledge.
I have read multiple days in the book and listened to multiple pieces and have been in love with every single one of them. I really appreciate how Clemency has expressed the importance of listening to classical music for every person. She brings up the stereotypical idea that people have to be in silence, sitting on the couch, and be in the mood to listen to classical music. She encourages people to listen to these pieces in any environment because it will enrich your lives no matter what. I will be getting this book for many friends and family members because I love it so. Here is a special treat for you – today’s musical piece! Take a listen (there is an apple music playlist and spotify playlist for all of the music included in the book:
