Definition: (adjective, adverb) In a smooth, lyrical, flowing style.
Synonyms: melodious, singing
Usage: The last passage of the movement was played cantabile, and
there was hardly a dry eye in the audience.
The cantabile of Heaven is given to us in a song book called Torah.
What was put in place "by the ministration of angels" is a sweetly flowing lyrical piece called the Torah.
From its beginning to its end, the Torah helps us to hear the sweet music which flows from Heaven's Throne and allows our lives to match the lyrical, flowing style of heaven itself.
Just as the earthly Tabernacle is a carnal replication of the heavenly tabernacle, so too do all the various instructions of Torah replicate the will of Yah which flows majestically through Heaven.
We read in Ezekiel that Satan was created with pipes fused into his body, a covering cherub who undoubtedly is a master of music by virtue of his created being. As Satan stands before the throne of Yah day and night, accusing the brethren (it is a christian myth that Satan has been cast out of heaven due to his rebellion -- this is an event still in our future), he stands in opposition to the cantabile in Heaven. This is why he despises Torah so much -- for it is the majestical, lyrical flow of music that defies his rebellion and teaches those whom he wishes to deceive the secret of this wondrous music.
In the Jewish religous culture, every line of the Hebrew Torah can be sung. The Jews understand the cantabile of Torah -- the lyricaly melodious flow of the written word of Yah.
Truly when we observe every jot and tittle of Torah, our lives, born in a chaotically noisy world, steps into this cantabile flow, a river of music that puts us in harmony with the great song being played from Heaven's Throne.
Someday the cantankerous noise Satan drums out will be swept completely away, first from the heavens and eventually from the earth, as the cantabile Torah thunders from one end of the universe to the other, no longer challenged by ear-wrenching, off-key rebellion.
The Torah promises many curses for those who keep only portions of Torah. I have written about this before in the context of why so many modern christians and churches are weighed down by so many curses: their partial obediance to Torah. Will you continue to refuse the lyrical flow of Torah and stand in a cantankerous off-pitch boom that originates not from the Throne but from a fallen angel?
Yes, you may be put into tune with much of the church world, or with the world, or with your own lusts and desires, your own idol of what you have made god into -- but you will be forever out of tune from Heaen's cantabile as long as you refuse to sing Heaven's Song.
Tune your life with the cantabile of Torah -- and let your heart and soul sing to Yah!
