ETERNAL PURNAM ADAH

shiva-433080__180

 In three ancient Upanishads Purnam Adah occurs. The translation speaks of great fullness. The sacred fullness that underlies everything in existence – manifest and not manifest. However, it is not the meaning of this verse which creates a peaceful influence in the environment it is the actual vibration itself. The sounds of this ancient Upanishad verse are really powerful and therefore the music has a peaceful affect on the surroundings.

Karenji Johnson, Judy Salerno, and Hannelore Clemenson are all part of a group who meditate to create peace and harmony. Karenji was asked to write this music in Thailand while she was meditating there with a peace creating group and participating in Buddhist pilgrimages in the jungle. Having had experience in writing western classical music , she began writing the music on whatever scrap paper that she could find. No recording equipment was available so she sang the song into her computer with a friend. However, the ants invaded her computer and destroyed the hard drive. She returned to USA without it.

Upon returning, Karenji made changes to the music and wrote a musical arrangement for two vocals, keyboard, and cello. She sings the soprano vocal and plays the keyboard. Judy Salerno sings the tenor vocal (Judy also sings kirtans with Chandra Das and does spontaneous ancient chanting ). Hannelore Clemenson plays the cello.

 Dya Singh produces Sikh sacred music for the restless soul - any soul.

Agitated babies go quiet listening to Dya Singh. Even animals have been known to respond. Singing in his mother tongue Punjabi and mainly from the Sikh scriptures with occasional English narrative, the theme is to transport the listener to what he refers to as 'beyond the limitations of the mind'.

With his three daughters giving vocal backing and a top flight group of non-Sikh Australian musicians who draw into their souls for their inspiration, this is song and music for all who are searching for the Truth about life. Dya Singh was voted Best Vocalist of the year 2000 at the Australian World Music awards.

Music for Zen Meditation..

 

Shakuhachi flute music has deep spiritual roots, back to the Komuso Monks in the Edo Period. The Shakuhachi flute expresses a deep kind of music that can only be heard when our mind is calm, we open our hearts, and walked with silence. The repertoire of the master Rodrigo Rodriguez has a broad musical knowledge of ancient and anonymous pieces, which were once sacred musical works.Rodrigo Rodriguez is the recipient of the most revered traditional shakuhachi lineages in Japan , recognized student of the shakuhachi master Kohachiro Miyata , linked to the lineage Mu-ryū.

Across the white slopes of the highest mountains of Japan, derives the sweet sound of flutes. The passionate call of the deer calls us the " wilderness " which has been a haven of spirit for many centuries. To name a few of his notable works are the album "The Road of Hasekura Tsunenaga " dedicated to the first Japanese diplomatic mission to Spain. The album was supported by Japan Foundation, Embassy of Japan in Spain, Coria del Rio, Casa Galicia Japon,and the committee of the Spain-Japan Dual Year.

The Six Healing Sounds

Six Healing Sounds.

 

World re-known composer and performer Yuval Ron has joined creative forces with Dr. Richard Gold, a longtime practitioner and teacher of Traditional Chinese Medicine to bring to modern life a magnificent musical production that is inspired and informed by ancient wisdom contained within the oldest known text of medicine on the planet, The Yellow Emperor’s Classic of Internal Medicine (Nei Jing). In the Nei Jing, dated from approximately 230 B.C. are specific tonal indications that correspond to each of the Five Elements in nature.

These tonal elements are considered capable of harmonizing the bio-energy (Chi) of human beings thus contributing to health and well-being. Mr. Ron has composed five original musical themes that are built around these tonal indications. Each primary theme is played by a master acoustic musician. A variety of instruments are played, including the zither, bamboo flute, classical guitar,. glass harmonica, oud and bass.

The acoustic timbres provide a profound effect on the body and mind , much more so than synthesized music can provide. In addition, this music is informed by the most recent theories of neuroscience and the effect of sound on the brain and consciousness. Also contained within the music are the presence of slow, steady, human-frequency breaths with vocalizations. These specific breathing sounds are also derived from the Nei Jing and contribute to the therapeutic and meditative effect of this music.

God Be In My Head was the track we featured from an original vinyl LP dated 1961.

10304775_340403266106952_2895202419527472446_n

 

A stained glass window at the Temple Church, London. The track God Be In My Head from the Temple Church includes the words God be in my head, and in my understanding; God be in mine eyes, and in my looking; God be in my mouth, and in my speaking; God be in my heart, and in my thinking; God be at mine end, and at my departing...

Could these words be a plea from the Knights Templars to make God a reality in our lives? The message of mystics going back thousands of years.

The music of Marko Näätänen

Marko Näätänen (b.1967, M.A. Helsinki University, Finland) is a Finnish composer of spiritual vocal music for 1-8 voices. Sanskrit, the liturgical language of Hinduism, is the most ancient known language, whose age, according to scholars, is at least 3000-4000 years. It is related to the Classical and Celtic languages. Ancient Sanskrit texts are an enormous source for very different musical styles and genres. The majority of the 100 - 200 compositions of Marko Näätänen include hymns to different aspects of the Goddess, a very ancient and important tradition in India. The other large corpus of compositions are for 9 planets, and for the 12 constellations.

The first recording (markonaatanen.com/Navagraha) is for 9 planets, Sun, Moon, Mars, Mercury, Jupiter, Venus, Saturn, Rahu and Ketu. According to Indian astrology (Jyotish), the last two are related to eclipses of the Sun and the Moon. Each celestial body represents a set of significations, which are expressed in the music.  For example, “The cryptic mantra of the Moon” expresses the “vibration of the silver”, and “ringing of the pearl”. The recording was made in 2013 by project choir ArcCamerata (Dir. Mareks Lobe) at medieval Nikuliste church in Tallinn, Estonia.

cd_cover2_christthrone-page-001

 

This second recording by the Choir of Christ the Saviour Orthodox Church (Ottawa, Canada) features hymns selected from various liturgical seasons and services of the Orthodox Church, particularly those of Lent and Holy Week.  Meditative and prayerful in spirit, the selections are mainly in English, with a few pieces being sung in Old Church Slavonic or French.

The chant traditions represented include Russian, Serbian, Bulgarian, Carpatho-Rusyn, and Romanian-Byzantine; hymns by modern North American composers also find their place.  Of note on this album is a sung/spoken arrangement of the Jesus Prayer that will be appreciated by those who practice this ancient form of contemplative prayer.  A fresh touch is lent by the young voices of the talented Girls’ Choir of the parish on the hymn “O Taste and See.” To hear sound clips: https://soundcloud.com/choirofchristthesaviouroc To purchase CDs: http://www.christthesaviour.ca/cd-shop/ To purchase digital downloads: http://www.liturgicamusic.com/store/process.php?pname=ShowAlbumDetailsProcess-Start&CategoryID=1&AlbumID=195&currency=price.USD

In every discipline, dedicated teachers are noteworthy individuals and deserving of praise. Music teachers, for their marvelous talents, are especially gifted and active purveyors of human culture and heritage.

Presented in the www.bswnc.org catalogue are two operatic hymns, "Amazing Grace" and "He Lives" and one operatic spiritual, "Little David, Play On Your Harp" performed by the late Belinda S. Womack, mezzo soprano and certified music educator for 40 years. Vigilant about providing voice and piano lessons throughout her childhood, her parents insisted she acquire exposure to a variety of music genres, from opera to jazz. As a teenager and into adulthood, she gave community concerts of operatic spirituals and patriotic classics.

Audiences were intensely delighted by her diction, elocution, and powerfully lyrical voice. Arrangements by H.T. Burleigh and recording artists such as Marian Anderson, Leontyne Price, and Mahalia Jackson were among her inspirations. An irreplaceable core which connects lives in human culture, music is indispensable.

From joyous occasions to mourning, music provides meaning and validation. It integrates disciplines thus exposure to and expression of music, in all its many aspects, enhances humanity.  Congratulations to Sacred Music Radio/Soothing Sounds LLP for bringing sacred music to the masses.

Baha’i House of Worship Devotional Service

A person who visits the Baha’i House of Worship for the North American Continent may be surprised if they happen to attend a regular Devotional Service there on the first three Sundays of each month when the choir sings.  Only the words from the sacred scriptures of the world’s main religions may be read and the only music one hears is a cappella based on any of those sacred scriptures.  Members of the choir are volunteers from the local community and membership is open to all singers, whether they read music or not.

The House of Worship choir sings from an upper level of the House of Worship unseen by worshippers on the main floor of the main auditorium.  The music which ranges from classical to American Negro gospel rings through the large open space of the House of Worship and seems to surround the worshippers.  The ethereal sounds without instruments seem to touch one’s very soul as the sacred words and themes transcend the physical to a more spiritual presence.

The director of the choir, Van Gilmer, often reminds the choir that the music must come from the soul and spirit of the singers in order to reach the souls of the listeners.  Each year, a Choral Festival is usually held every Memorial Day weekend that is open to all singers to learn sacred, a cappella music for two culminating Devotional Concerts held at the House of Worship.

TaHaDi

Pi-27 (tahadi+string quartet)

 

TaHaDi are Víctor Carol Lalauze, Nacho Perez Osia and Ravid Goldschmidt, three unconventional musicians who practice the art of drawing organic sounds from their telluric instruments.

The connection between two historical instruments such as the Didgeridoo(40.000 years old) and Tabla (2.000 years old) along with the Hang (15 years old), creates a magic atmosphere of a new world. Ancient and modern acoustic, eastern or western timbres. Wood, Leather and Metal vibrate together in a single chord. Classical tabla compositions, melodies from another dimension outlined by the Hang and contemporary / aboriginal rhythms of the didgeridoo leads to a totally new music path.

It is, in short, a hymn to life and the importance of the infinitesimal everyday occurrences that ultimately give meaning to our existence. Musically this manifests in a minimalist aesthetic that relates to observation of the impulses that give rise to life; a representation of these repetitive cycles through the sounds the Didgeridoo, Hang and Tabla. This is a unique program exploring the harmonies that govern our environments and our selves.
