Our newest release is an album of Michael Stillwater’s original contemporary chants and intuitive songportraits, recorded live through several years of musical gatherings and private sessions, orchestrated afterwards in the studio. It offers the listener an audible window into the globally emergant world of devotional ‘heart singing’, as well as the unique artistry of intuitive songmaking.

 

Many of the chants (repeated choruses) originated as ‘songportraits’- spontaneous, intuitively created songs responding to one person’s request or theme . Several of these original songportraits are included on the album, with orchestration underscoring the music and words.
