I knew a man who was deaf to human speech, but he could hear music perfectly well. At the Lutheran church, for example, when the pastor lectured, this man would look around idly, or fidget with his hands. But when the organ played, he would sit up straight and close his eyes, tasting the lush fugue. One Sunday, I passed him a note from across the pew: “When people sing, what do you hear?” When he read it, he quietly collected his hat and coat to leave. A few steps into the center aisle, he collapsed.
