"One Heart", blends Jewish musical traditions with a sprinkle of international flavors to transport you to a sacred place in time...this moment. "One Heart", evokes a sense of musical universality. The sense of oneness is captured through instruments and lyrics. Listen to the mystical sounds of the sitar, the stringed instrument of India; the romantic sounds of the classical guitar, with its Sephardic (Spanish) feel; the Fraylich (Yiddish) sounds of the clarinet, capturing the Ashkenazic traditions; and the haunting breathy sounds of the Native American flute, connecting us with the divine presence in nature.
Sing along with the niggun (music without words) offered within the framework of the songs and meditations. Feel free to add your own harmonies. During the meditation chants, you may wish to close your eyes, sit quietly in each prayer intention and chant along. Cantor Lynda Dresher composed these melodies and lyrics over a ten year period. Her soul's journey brought her to the cantorate and to the Jewish spiritual meditation practice which inspired this CD.
May "One Heart", fill you with loving kindness, compassion, healing, peace and joy, towards yourself and the world. May you discover that giving and receiving love is God's greatest message and gift to you.
