Song spans every human life, stills the babe to slumber, satisfies the craving of the heart, inspires human fraternity, brings back memorie3, incites to action, lulls to rest, comforts the sorrowing and soothes the dying. It is all-powerful and is the only form of art that can be used at one time by great masses of people. Song is the universal language. The words may be French, German, Norwegian, Russian or Italian, but the music is known, loved and understood in all nations. Songs that reflect the moods, sentiments, aspirations and ideals of past generations and continue to find a response in succeeding generations are truly "Songs That Live."
