Chopin's Barcarolle.  Almost all states and modes of life have a moment of rapture, and good artists know how to discover that moment.  Such a moment there is even in life by the seashore — that dreary, sordid, unhealthy existence, dragged out in the neighbourhood of a noisy and covetous rabble.  This moment of rapture Chopin in his Barcarolle expressed in sound so supremely that Gods themselves, when they heard it, might yearn to lie long summer evenings in a boat.
