Music for quiet meditation
Timeless plainsong from a medieval abbey centred around one of the most popular mass melodies, 'Cunctipotens genitor Deus'. The music was used for major feasts and church celebrations and its eternal beauty perfectly captures a need for calm and contemplation: solace indeed for those hours where peace is needed by the listener.

Music for Quiet Contemplation
The Venerable Bede informs us in passing of musical activity in the monasteries of Northern England: 'all those present at a feast took it in turns to sing and entertain the company', and he refers specifically to the harp. This reference finds its echo in the great poem of Beowulf in which, at court before King Hrothgar, a poet sings a song of creation: the monster, Grendel, must lurk in the outer darkness and endure the 'din of merry-making inside the hall, and the sound of the harp and the bard's clear song'.
The music on this album is a re-creation of music that may have been familiar to the scribes of the Lindisfarne Gospels. It combines plainchant - the sacred vocal music of the early church - with Celtic harp and Northumbrian pipe. The harpist improvises on sacred tunes, the piper plays eloquent versions of early Northern folk melodies.
