"Music is so naturally united with us that we cannot be free from it even if we so desired."
--Anicius Manlius Severinus Boethius

Boethius classified music in three ways:

1. Musica mundana: music of the spheres (world)
2. Musica humana: harmony of body and spirit
3. Musica instrumentalis: instrumental music, the human voice

Boethius was recognized as a saint by the Catholic Church.
