Francis Schaeffer in The Gift of Music writes ...
"There are things in the Christian world that cause us to be sad. One of these is that for many Christians classical music is a complete vacuum. This robs individual Christians and their children of one of the very rich areas of joy in this life."

Ideas have consequences. Whatever ideas a composer or artist holds to be true will affect how he composes or paints! Music sounds different from generation to generation because that which is thought to be true changes. Paintings also look different from generation to generation because that which is thought to be true changes.

A Unique Study
The primary purpose of The Fine Arts: A Historical Perspective is to help your children see the shifts in style from period to period — to see art and hear music in the flow of history. Beginning with paintings and music from the Early Christian period, your children will move quickly through each major period of history. It is believed that these shifts in style as seen in art and heard in music reflect corresponding changes in beliefs. Because The Fine Arts: A Historical Perspective is seeking to show the effect of world-views on culture, it is a cross-sectional study. That is to say, instead of an in-depth study of each period of history where all major artists or composers from each style are studied prior to moving to the next period, each Gallery of Adventures In Art and Performance from Classical Composers include one significant painter or composer from each period. In order to see the unfolding of Western culture, the paintings and musical compositions are set in a chronological sequence. Your children will begin to recognize the characteristic style of each period as well as to contrast styles from previous periods. This cross-sectional approach allows your children to see very quickly the changes in art and hear the changes in music that indicate changes in worldviews.
THE FINE ARTS: A Historical Perspective combines Classical Composers and Adventures in Art into one audio-visual masterpiece. This unique eCurriculum brings together 2000 years of Western music and art in a dramatic way. Through a panoramic presentation major changes in thought are revealed. The analysis is easy to understand and is written for those who have little or no knowledge of classical music or art. To fully understand Western history a study of its music and art is imperative. This study details the thoughts and ideas of those composers and painters who have helped to shape the thinking and emotions of modern man. THE FINE ARTS is an audio-visual world view masterpiece. Based upon the teaching of Dr. Francis Schaeffer. This is a music-art history/appreciation course that every student should take before leaving home.
