Thank you, Susan. I'm afraid as a struggling first-time author I don't have the funds to produce an audio copy at the moment, but once sales permit I shall be happy to make one...

As to music, and its ability to go straight to the 'soul', you'll doubtless be frustrated to hear I have a chapter (or a section of one) on that too. The fact that most other animals barely show any reaction to music tells us quite a bit about its relationship to language, I think -- or perhaps to the way our language-enhanced consciousness makes us more sensitive to rhythm and melody. Steven Pinker calls music 'audio cheesecake', and I think there's something to that. And perhaps the tension/release patterns so typical of music simply reflect the psychological tensions, the 'keening' that language inevitably induces in our conflicted 'souls'.
