MRS says, "That was also his favorite composer Handel's intent as well, who once said that he composed to make men better. So, does music really have the power to make people better, more humane & moral, more graceful, & therefore less prone to annoyance, cruelty & anger? Or is it just a temporary effect, at best?"
Given the gradual accretion and increased availability of such music, then if the effect were permanent we would be growing better and better as people. Whether that is the case or not, I leave to your judgment!
