Solve it Sunday: Ciphertext

Hello my dear Sherlocks, I have a simple cipher for you to solve today.

If you don’t know what that means, basically the letters in the cipher have been moved around out of order.

Good luck solving it, and as always, the answer is in the comments!

In this puzzle, the challenge is to decrypt a quotation that has been made obscure by the use of a simple cipher. Are you able to work out what it says?

    The cipher works simply by reversing the entire block of text, so it starts with the last letter and reads back to the first, completely ignoring line-breaks. The quotation is:

    “It would be possible to describe everything scientifically, but it would make no sense – it would be without meaning, as if you described a Beethoven symphony as a variation of wave pressure”
