Is it wise to “fall” asleep with a requiem on the ears?

Looked lightly at my small record collection, and picked a recording from 1954 — Bruno Walter conducting the New York Philharmonic playing the Requiem by Johannes Brahms.

It appears to me that a given question may bring about an answer which is unable to quench the thirst for knowing, as the wonder without asking might clearly surpass an understanding.
