Sound and Spirit (2011 Encore)

Tapestry explores the role of sound, music, and the human voice in the world of belief and healing. Mary Hynes visits with Sheikh Alaa El-Sayed who is the director of religious affairs at the Islamic Society of North America to talk about the power of the human voice in the call to prayer. We also hear from famed neurologist Oliver Sacks about why atheists can be deeply moved by religious music. And a feature documentary on music in therapy and healing.
