„Musicorum et cantorum magna est distantia.
Isti dicunt, illi sciunt, quae componit musica.
Nam qui facit, quod non sapit, definitur bestia.“
The rough translation is as follows:
"There is a great difference between musicians and singers.
The latter perform, the former know what music is composed of.
Because indeed, he who does without knowing what he does can be defined as a beast."
There is an ongoing battle between those who merely perform music and those who understand and create it.
This battle is at least 1000 years old.
