Here's a link to a great interview with Oscar Sachs - the author of Musicophillia - about the neuroscience of music. He made an interesting point about - given "we are now able to listen to anything we like on our iPods, we
have less motivation to go to concerts or churches or synagogues, less occasion to sing together", and how this is unfortunate, "because music-making engages much more of our brains than simply listening".

The full interview is worth the read.
