Twelfth Night, said by Orsino, Act I, scene I.
Music is my mistress, and she plays second fiddle to none.duke ellington
What is called music today is all too often only a disguise for the monologue of power. However, and this is the supreme irony of it all, never before have musicians tried so hard to communicate with their audience, and never before has that communication been so deceiving.

...that Indian music, like Scottish and Irish music is modal and harmonic. ...During a performance it is this mood, colour or passion which the musician tries to evoke and explore, and according to ancient theory his task is made easier if the performance takes place at the time and in the ambiance proper to the raga.Jamily and Reginald Massey
Listening to music engages the previously acquired personal knowledge of the listener.

I am advised to give her music o' mornings; they say it will penetrate.william shakespeare
