As I said before, music's magical. It touches our memories like nothing else. For instance, I was quite amazed when I did my first service at an aged care facility. Some residents brought to the service were in advanced stages of dementia and alzheimer's disease. I was told that several of them had very few moments of lucidity. But during the worship service, as we sang a few old favourite hymns, I was shocked to see many of these residents singing along. In many sad cases, these residents could not remember their spouse and their children, yet they could sing Amazing Grace or Down by the Riverside with fervour. Truly that demonstrates the magic of song.
