Melody of the Angels

The neshama yeseirah (the additional neshama that joins us on Shabbos) that comes down from heaven, is accustomed to hearing the songs of the angels.  It therefore enjoys listening to zemiros, which reminds it of when it was attached to its celestial root, similar to a newborn baby that is soothed when it hears its mother singing a soft melody.  The pure and innocent baby was accustomed to hearing the angels sing, and the mother’s gentle humming reminds the baby of the angels’ choir.  ~ Sefer Avodas Hakodesh
