Context

“«Oh yes, that is what prevented me from feeling sleepy. I think I should have no other mortal wants, if I could always have plenty of music. It seems to infuse strength into my limbs, and ideas into my brain. Life seems to go on without effort, when I am filled with music. At other times one is conscious of carrying a weight.»
«And Stephen has a splendid voice, hasn't he?»
«Well, perhaps we are neither of us judges of that,» said Maggie, laughing, as she seated herself and tossed her long hair back. «You are not impartial, and I think any barrel-organ splendid.»” source
