Music that takes us Beyond

Bloganuary invites us to write about a song or poem that speaks to us:

I heard this on ABC Classic about six months ago. It has haunted me ever since – in a restful, peaceful manner. It is not an earworm like those that occasionally cling to my consciousness from my range of otherwise eclectic musical tastes. Rather it is meditative and takes me to places of deep rest. The meter and tone ranges seem to synchronise with the oscillations of my bone structure. I do not know what the song is about (apart from the title). The words are not in a language familiar to me so they do not distract. Rather I can sink into the music’s resonance, and sense its vibrations. It is neither secular nor sacred but takes me beyond and is therefore experienced by me as holy.

Not really retired but reshaped and reshaping. Now a pilgrim at large ready to engage with what each day brings.
