Why was there no music at the Meal which Acshverosh made?
Rabbi Matisyahu Solomon asks Why didn’t Achashveirosh provide music to tempt the sense of hearing? He answers based on the Radak who says that we’ll never totally understand Tehilim until we understand the musical instructions and instruments assigned to each piece. The power of a nigun is to add “hesber v’havana b’dakus hadevarim.” To this point, the Meiri explains the pasuk of “Zamru maskil”; that singing gives insight. However, it only gives insight, or is Meorer that which is hidden in our hearts and souls. rather the tune is Meorer what’s in one's heart. Even if a given tune is Meorer some to Ta’avah, nevertheless, the same tune can bring an Ish Kodesh to Dveykus.
