Their friends Judith and Jérôme, a married couple of Protestant pastors, try to rationalise how Simon and Elisabeth must feel, offering guidance and consolation through theological and philosophical discussions, but the couple are beyond the reach of human understanding or explanation, and the pervasive and persuasive music of 'the other, ' of a love beyond death, exerts an irresistible attraction."
