Singing can hardly have value
If the song doesn’t come from the heart,
And a song cannot come from the heart,
If the heart has no true love.
—Bernart de Ventadorn (12th century)
There’s a tender message deep down in my heart
Something you should know, but how am I to start?
Sentimental speeches never could impart
Just exactly what I want to tell you…Say it with music.
—Irving Berlin (20th century)
