We are Certified Music Practitioners and volunteer our services to people within our community who are hospice and nursing home patients or who experience pain or stress related conditions. 

We often find that the spoken word in the form of stories or readings can add a very effective addition to our music. 

It was with that purpose that we created Meditative Readings.  We hope that you will find its be a relaxing and meaningful experience, or if you or your loved one is in the process of transition with a terminal illness, we trust its contents will assist with those important final days and weeks. 

We hope this recording will touch you in a gentle and healing way.  It combines Gary's quiet and meditative style of speaking with the soothing sounds of Anne's Celtic harp, keyboard, and sounds of nature.  It contains some of Gary's original essays plus a collection of well known favorites by other creators.

 

During our performances, I often tell stories and read prose while Anne backs me with her Celtic harp and keyboard.   Many of you have requested a recording of this nature. 

As a result, I selected some of my favorite prose and combined them with my own writings.  I trust you will find the listening experience as valuable as the creation experience was for me. 

Gary


Most spoken voice and music recordings are done in two pieces.  The reader records his/her portion and then it is added to pre-recorded music. 

Seeking a more creative experience, Gary and I sat together to create this recording.   I played "live" as Gary spoke.  This allowed us to work off of each other's presence. I like to think of this as one of our most creative and artistic efforts.
