For lever or pedal harp.
These pieces for devotional chanting were inspired by John Philip Newell's Sound of the Eternal: A Celtic Psalter. A psalter, according to Wikipedia, is a volume containing the Book of Psalms often with other devotional material bound in as well, such as a liturgical calendar and litany of the Saints.
The benefits of the practice of chanting, the repetitious singing of sacred texts, can include a calm mind, a relaxed body and a joyful spirit! If our heart is in it, chanting creates communion with the mystery of the Divine. The repetition in chanting practice reflects the repetition in breathing, in the sunrise and in the seasons. It is hoped the simplicity of the chants makes them easy to memorize, so they may be recalled in challenging moments, to be sung out loud or silently within the heart.
