Human voice “connects itself with the spirit” and “the spirit can be uplifted” by human voice

In the world of existence physical things have a connection with spiritual realities. One of these things is the voice, which connects itself with the spirit; and the spirit can be uplifted by this means -- for though it is a physical thing, it is one of the material, natural organizations -- therefore, it is effective. 
('Abdu'l-Bahá's, from an address quoted by to Mary L. Lucas in "A Brief Account of My Visit to Acca"; The Compilation of Compilations vol II) (To read the entire talk please visit Talks of ‘Abdu’l-Baha)
