Music is born of silence. That one silence possesses and encompasses all sound, and yet is inaudible to us. When the first note is sung silence becomes music, the One gives birth to the many, an infinite variety of melody and harmony, a rainbow of musical tones expressing facets of a single Light. Songs of the Way is a musical tapestry, bringing tones from east and west into harmony to express the many aspects of the silence of inwardness and contemplation.

Music is born of silence. That one silence possesses and encompasses all sound, and yet is inaudible to us. When the first note is sung silence becomes music, the One gives birth to the many, an infinite variety of melody and harmony, a rainbow of musical tones expressing facets of a single Light. Songs of the Way is a musical tapestry, bringing tones from east and west into harmony to express the many aspects of the silence of inwardness and contemplation.

The inspiration that animates this work, its life and soul, is the poetry of Seyyed Hossein Nasr, for it expresses timeless Truth and a life devoted to attaining it. The dimensions of this personal yet universal message evoke a diversity of responses, of spiritual states and perspectives, expressed in the Songs of the Way. The yearning lament of the Kamanche and the Ney, the interiorizing fervor of flamenco guitar, and the nobility of the classical Middle Eastern Sufi style all express human responses to a Divinity that transcends us. They call us to remember the Sacred within us, and ultimately, like everything beautiful, manifest aspects of Divinity Itself. And amid these tones there is the voice, the sound closest to our heart, which soars to evoke the cadence that we heard before the world was born.
