This new collection of spiritual masterpieces will delight all lovers of anthologies. Unusually it is formed in the shape of a symphony  with dark phrases and lighter ones and glorious uplands of magical harmonies that lift the spirit to realms of the ethereal. This is an anthology of other men’s insights—other men’s inspirations. We need all that they give in order that we might make sense of those difficult, obscure parts of life when God seems silent, or the storm clouds gather, or the desert unending—we need their awareness, their perception, their understanding so that we too can perceive, understand, and pick up the theme of the symphony once again.

Book Description

This is a must-have anthology—for the bedside—that special gift—as sermon material—teacher’s handbook—hospice/retreat house library—it has a myriad uses and will delight all who acquire it.

“Mozart” wrote Goethe, “is a human incarnation of the divine creative power…sorrow, gladness, yearning, hope, love, belong to all of us in all times and all places. Music is the only means whereby we feel these emotions in their universality, for music is the common language of all humanity.” So it is entirely appropriate that Anna Jeffery should present this wonderful anthology in the context of a musical theme.

—Very Rev Alex Wedderspoon, Dean Emeritus, Guildford

“To take the concept of a symphony as a model of the individual’s progress through life is imaginative enough. To deal with each of its movements by the quotations in this volume, from sources familiar and less so, is a mark of deep spiritual perception and insight. This is a ‘Spiritual Symphony’ which strikes deep chords, sympathetic resonances, in the mind and heart of the reader. Symphony of Life can of course be used as a resource to dip into and find inspiration from…but as a symphony needs to be listened to in the entirety of its progress, so this work deserves to be listened to, read, heard and absorbed from cover to cover. It is a deeply rewarding journey for which I for one am very grateful.” —Rt.Rev. John Dennis, Winchester
