Why does my speech slow down when listening to classical music?

I noticed something really strange about the way how I talk when I'm listening to classical music, specifically Beethoven's solo piano sonatas. I noticed that my speech actually slows down and when I turn off the music, my speech increases by 2x the speed. Why?

    If you were listening to any kind of music you wouldn't be talking.

    Music has a tremendous effect on mood and listening to classical music, especially the Classical period (Mozart, Haydn, Beethoven) may have a calming effect similar to meditation. When I was younger I accidentally discovered that listening to Mozart's symphonies for 15 minutes without doing anything else helped my concentration before the exams.

    What happens when music is on is not so surprising. Have you asked yourself why are you so "fast" when music is off?

    A person can make better musical decisions by way of having true devotion to St. Cecilia, who is the patron saint of musicians and was a virgin-martyr for Christ in the early Catholic Church.  Her husband and she lived in celibacy and her husband became a martyr for Christ as well.
