Deep Peace as Sung by Libana

This beautiful song and video is the song, Deep Peace as sung by Libana. The images are stunning and the song instills a feeling of deep peace.

I found these lyrics on another website:

Deep peace of the running wave to you
Deep peace of the flowing air to you
Deep peace of the quiet earth to you
Deep peace of the shining stars to you
Deep peace of the gentle night to you
Moon and stars pour their healing light on you
Deep peace to you

Libana’s rendering leaves out the references to Christ that you can find in the lyrics somewhere. I wonder why they did this. Perhaps I’ll share the link with them and ask that question.

Libana is a New England’s international touring world music ensemble. It was formed in 1979 by Artistic Director, Susan Robbins. Susan has been researching, performing, and celebrating songs, dances and instrumental music from around the world, especially as handed down through women’s traditions.

Libana members of the ensemble include Lisa Bosley, Allison Coleman, Charlotte Miller, Marytha Paffrath, Susan Robbins, Linda Ugelow and Cheryl Weber. Their wonderful voices are very enchanting.

Another one of their songs, The Earth is Our Mother, was chanted every year on Earth Day at Marin Horizon School. It is a Montessori school in Mill Valley, California where my girls went from being toddlers until they graduate eighth grade.

Did you enjoy the music and the video? What was your response?
