Music and Worship/Spirituality

My early religious background was Catholic. I think I was about 13 when I realised that the only reason I still went to church was because I enjoyed singing hymns.

Music has always evoked a strong response from me, and there are some times when a particular piece of music can create an almost euphoric feeling in me.

For example...I went to a pagan weekend camp once when I was about 16. There was a guy there with a harmonium (Sort of a mini-piano with a bellows attatchment) and when he played it, I slipped into the chakra without meaning to. I'd just shut my eyes, and went through them. I have never experianced a pathworking of more clarity or intensity than that time.

So... is this just me? Do any of you get the same response from music?...What particular music works best for you?...and do you use this in your rituals?
