Chamber, chambers or the chamber may refer to:
Music is an art form and cultural activity whose medium is sound organized in time. The common elements of music are pitch (which governs melody and harmony), rhythm (and its associated concepts tempo, meter, and articulation), dynamics (loudness and softness), and the sonic qualities of timbre and texture (which are sometimes termed the "color" of a musical sound). Different styles or types of music may emphasize, de-emphasize or omit some of these elements. Music is performed with a vast range of instruments and vocal techniques ranging from singing to rapping; there are solely instrumental pieces, solely vocal pieces (such as songs without instrumental accompaniment) and pieces that combine singing and instruments. The word derives from Greek μουσική (mousike; "art of the Muses"). See glossary of musical terminology.
It was music, more than anything else, that led the Pythagoreans to believe that the universe is a harmonious place governed by numbers.
Ian Stewart, Another Fine Math You’ve Got Me Into (1992) p. 236
Where music dwells
Lingering, and wandering on as loth to die:
Like thoughts whose very sweetness yieldeth proof
That they were born for immortality.
William Wordsworth, Ecclesiastical Sonnets, Part III. 63. Inside of King's Chapel, Cambridge.
Let music sound while he doth make his choice;
Then, if he lose, he makes a swan-like end,
Fading in music.
William Shakespeare, The Merchant of Venice (late 1590s), Act III, scene 2, line 43.
