Patrick Lindley | Out of the Silence
Click for full size image
Patrick Lindley's flowing musical meditations are designed to enhance a state of spiritual, emotional and physical peace in the listener.
Tracks 1 and 9 of Out of the Silence are based on one of the oldest and best-loved Western hymns, Veni Creator Spiritus (Come, Creator Spirit).
The hymn dates from the 9th century, and invokes the help of the spirit to attain a mental state of joy and enlightenment.
Set to a haunting, timeless melody, the hymn asks the spirit to make our hearts overflow with love, to strengthen our patience, and lead us to peace.
