Lisa Gerrard

In collaboration with Brendan Perry, Lisa Gerrard is half of the duo Dead Can Dance, which started releasing arty goth rock on the 4AD label in the mid-'80s. Gerrard began her solo career with the 1995 release The Mirror Pool, which contained a lot of work that wouldn't fit comfortably into the DCD oeuvre. Combining these fragments with music that she composed and arranged digitally before reconfiguring them into scores that could be performed, it also draws on a composition by Handel and traditional Iranian music. Recorded and produced largely at her home in rural Australia, it extends the world music inclinations of recent Dead Can Dance albums by featuring bouzouki, tablas, and camel drums; though the somber, orchestrated pomp of Dead Can Dance is also present in her operatic, often wordless vocals, and string/woodwind passages (some of which were performed by Australia's Victorian Philharmonic Orchestra). Gerrard released her second album, Duality, written and performed with Pieter Bourke, in the spring of 1998. Gerrard composed the score for director Niki Caro's Whale Rider in 2003, followed by Immortal Memory, a collaboration with Irish composer Patrick Cassidy in 2004. Another collaboration followed in 2005, this time with composer Jeff Rona for the soundtrack to the Native American drama A Thousand Roads. ~ Richie Unterberger

Lisa Gerrard's voice is truly an exception to all vocals out there. Her range is peerless, her grasp of musical styles profound.

Is this the same woman who sang in the 300 Movie? SHE SOUNDS EXACTLY LIKE HER & even sings in the same style. Listening to Pandora suggested "Mind Melt" while I write papers & it's SO perfect for me right meow! ;)

By surrender, self-offerin g and self-dedicat i o n to the Divine Force, the Divine Shakti, our throat chakra opens-up and is surrendered to the Divine for subtilisatio n & transformati o n . Finally, as our head or crown chakra opens, ascent is followed by descent; thus, our vital - physical - mental lower-nature gradually transforms - Supramentali s e s . In this Path of Purification greed, hatred, sloth, torpor are inexorably converted to profound love-peace-g o o d w i l l - p r o d u c t i v e n e s s - - c r e a t i v e harmony...

Loose the cords of mistakes binding us,
As we release the strands we hold of other’s guilt.
Don’t let surface things delude us,
But free us from what holds us back.
From you is born all ruling will,
The power and the life to do,
The song that beautifies all,
From age to age it renews.
I affirm this with my whole being.

Here is the translation:
O, Birther of the Cosmos, focus your light within us — make it useful
Create your reign of unity now
Your one desire then acts with ours,
As in all light,
So in all forms,
Grant us what we need each day in bread and insight:

Abwoon D’Bashmaya – The Lord’s Prayer in Aramaic
This has long been one of my favorite sacred texts. Not only have the pure sounded of the Aramaic language, but the meaning of it as well. I grew up with a very different version in my head (as many of us did, I guess) and the differences between that, and this, are profound. In addition, this rendition is beautifully sung and arranged.
