Music Drives the Devil Away

I have no use for cranks who despise music, because it is a gift of God. Music drives away the Devil and makes people gay; they forget thereby all wrath, unchastity, arrogance, and the like. Next after theology I give to music the highest place and the greatest honor.
—Martin Marty, Martin Luther (New York: Penguin, 2004), 114.
