Musical and true

And apropos of birdsong, the human voice too can be musical and true:

She let her mind wander back over her stay at Grand Isle; and she tried to discover wherein this summer had been different from any and every other summer of her life. She could only realize that she herself — her present self — was in some way different from the other self. That she was seeing with different eyes and making the acquaintance of new conditions in herself that colored and changed her environment, she did not yet suspect. . . .

Robert's voice was not pretentious. It was musical and true. The voice, the notes, the whole refrain haunted her memory.

— Kate Chopin, The Awakening, chapter 14 (1899)
