"Music is given of God to further his purposes. Sweet melodies mellow the souls of men and help prepare them for the gospel. After men receive the truth, songs of praise to Deity help to sanctify and cleanse their souls."
-- Elder Bruce R. McConkie, Mormon Doctrine (1966), 521
"Music can set an atmosphere of worship which invites [the] spirit of revelation, of testimony."
-- President Boyd K. Packer, Ensign, Nov. 1991, 22
"When music is presented which, however appropriate for other occasions, does not fit the Sabbath, much is lost. . . . The Spirit does not ratify speech nor confirm music which lacks spiritual substance."
-- President Boyd K. Packer, Ensign, Nov. 1991, 22
"Those who choose, conduct, present, and accompany the music may influence the spirit of reverence in our meetings more than a speaker does."
-- President Boyd K. Packer, Ensign, Nov. 1991, 22
