OMNE VERBUM SONAT
Long Night of Music,
St. Paulskirche, Munich, 2006 ⁄ 2008


 

“omne verbum sonat.
Cum enim est scripto,
non verbum
sed verbi signum est;
quippe inspectis
a legente litteris occurrit animo,
quid voce prorumpat.”
Aurelius Augustinus, 354 - 430
 
Any word ‘sonat’ (sounds; is sounded). Therefore, when it is written it is not a word, but the sign of a word;
when the reader sees them, the letters impinge upon the mind,
which breaks out in voice.
Augustine (trans. J. Marchand)
