Why is music important in religion?
In the early Christian tradition, as with many other religions, one had to be careful with their use of music. Music is a nearly universal part of religion because it appeals to and heightens human senses in a pleasurable way which, in turn, allows humans to praise through a medium that makes worship more enjoyable.
