      From Coriolanus, Act 5, Scene 4, by Shakespeare:

      Second Messenger

      Good news, good news; the ladies have prevail'd,
      The Volscians are dislodged, and Marcius gone:
      A merrier day did never yet greet Rome,
      No, not the expulsion of the Tarquins.

      SICINIUS

      Friend,
      Art thou certain this is true? is it most certain?


      Second Messenger

      As certain as I know the sun is fire:
      Where have you lurk'd, that you make doubt of it?
      Ne'er through an arch so hurried the blown tide,
      As the recomforted through the gates. Why, hark
      you!

      Trumpets; hautboys; drums beat; all together
      The trumpets, sackbuts, psalteries and fifes,
      Tabours and cymbals and the shouting Romans,
      Make the sun dance. Hark you!

      A shout within

      MM:
      I think Shakespeare has used this analogy to describe
      the return of the souls to Sach Khand. He calls those
      souls "recomforted." He mentions trumpets, tabours,
      drums, and cymbals, which must mean the Shabd of the
      fifth stage. The Shabd is very loud and pulling
      there, and there is a vibration of love, which Soami
      Ji Maharaj also mentioned in Sar Bachan. He said that
      the love vibrates in all parts of "Ansh Roop," (the
      whole region.)
