Based on the work of John Philip Newell's latest book, Praying with the Earth: A Prayerbook for Peace, this beautiful collection of meditative chants was composed by Santa Fe musician Linda Larkin. It contains 3 chants with texts from the Psalms which have descants in Hebrew, 3 chants from Matthew with Aramaic descants and 3 chants from the Koran with Arabic descants. Thus Jewish, Christian and Muslim traditions are included. 
 
The chants are recorded on the CD "Chanting for Peace" and correlate with "Praying with the Earth: A Prayerbook for Peace" by author John Philip Newell. Examples of texts used are “Come to me, you who are weary, carrying heaven burdens and I will give you rest” from Matthew and “For every soul there is a Guardian watching it” from the Koran. Musical notation includes chant melodies, descants and accompaniments written for folk harp or piano, with chord charts for guitar and other instruments.

From Mary: I have had the great priveledge of hearing John Philip speak at several Celtic Spirituality events, and I have even played harp at one of them.  I highly recommend all of his books.  And if you have a chance to hear him speak, don't hesitate, go. It might interest you to know that J. Philip Newell's wife is a Scottish harper.
