The Gift of Music: Great Composers and Their Influence by Jane Stuart Smith and Betty Carlson. 

"I have found my musical soul again ... this time in the preludes of Chopin... Aren’t they wonderful? ... they are so passionate, so hopeless, I could almost cry over them; they are unbearable. I will find out the numbers of the ones I mean and we will have a feast next holidays."
- C.S. Lewis (in a letter to his friend Arthur Greeves)
