Healing Music

Music is therapeutic. Clinical studies show the positive use of music in addressing physical, emotional, cognitive, and social needs. Two different CD sets by Sheldon Cohen and offered through ACTA Publications are designed to provide calm and uplifting background music that soothes the spirit.9780879463014


The 2-CD music collections by Sheldon Cohen are a buy at $14.95. Music to Heal the Body and the Soul contains one CD featuring familiar, classical melodies by composers such as Debussy, Dvorak, and Schumann. The other has 19 of our favorite religious songs including “Were You there?,” “Amazing Grace,” “Shall We gather at the River,” and “Pie Jesus.”


Music to Soothe the Spirit, also a 2-CD set, has one CD of sacred music such as “Swing Low Sweet Chariot,” “We Gather Together,” and “Morning Has Broken.” The other CD has Broadway show tunes including “The Shadow of Your Smile,” “Over the Rainbow,” and “Love is a Many Splendored Things.”


The melodies offer a positive break from the hustle and bustle of our busy, noisy world. No matter how tired or troubled, they’re sure to get you humming along and leave you smiling.
