About to hit the sack and thought I would post this quickly and see what you folks out there think.
I’ve been obsessed with looking up facts about Barber’s Adagio for Strings at various points this weekend (that’s a problem with the iPhone: you can act on such obsessive impulses too easily), and in one of my Google searches came across this old 2007 article at Christianity.com: “The Loss of Beauty.”
While the thought it expresses is not new to me, the instance of the Washington Post experiment is. (Reminds me of different experiment exploring the beauty of math using the proof of the irrationality of two, but that’s a post for another day!)
What are your thoughts, music lovers? While I would not want this to come across as an endorsement of everything you read on Christianity.com (never heard of it before today, I think), I do recommend that you read the article. If you do, let me know what you think.
