Editorial Reviews


Enter into this aural oratory made of Merton s word and Deignan s song, and hear the resonance that will heal the dissonance of your soul. A bell will summon you each day at dawn and dusk to a brief sounding of prayer. Rest there. Linger. Sink in to the silence beneath the word, the echoing silence beneath the song. Lear the art of audio divina... --Sacred Journey: The Journal of Fellowship in Prayer

Product Description

An audio breviary created by Kathleen Deignan, CND composed of the prayers, poems and psalms of the spiritual master who has taught the world to pray. Drawn from her edited volume Thomas Merton: A Book of Hours (Sorin Books 2007), she has inter-laced his mystical world with her scared song to weave a sound tapestry for prayer at dawn and dusk each day that will encompass you in stillness or in motion, in solitude or while moving through the busyness of your life. With Jonathan Montaldo of the Merton Institute for Contemplative Living and Paul Avgerinos of Studio Unicorn, Kathleen invites you to be at prayer with Thomas Merton and savor of grace of contemplative presence.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful companion for morning and evening prayer July 29, 2009
Format:Audio CD
Those who know of Dr. Kathleen Deignan's many albums of religious music and of her award-winning collections of Thomas Merton's writings on nature will welcome this wonderful blending of her two talents. There are 14 prayers--seven for morning and seven for evenings--two for each day of the week. Each is 11 minutes in duration which never seemed long enough. Each prayer includes music, readings and invocations which transport the listener to a place of quiet and adoration. For those who do not have a community with which to pray, this double CD will provide a welcomed companion and treasure.

4.0 out of 5 stars another way of looking at classic prayer February 5, 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
There is a CD with seven meditations for morning prayer, and a similiar CD with Evening prayer. I would have liked to have morning and prayer for the day follow each other on the same CD, but other than that, the short spoken meditations are succinct and flowing, yet you must think about them to get the full flavor of prayer. The original music is sweetly sung and very psalm like. I recommend it to people who want to have a little different calm prayer on their commute, or people who can spare ten minutes in solitude

5.0 out of 5 stars A Book of Hours at Prayer with Thomas Merton August 15, 2009
Format:Audio CD
I have been searching for a way to incorporate my yoga practice into a prayer and this CD has done it for me. The music fits with the asanas and the spoken words allow me to concentrate on the movement rather than having to create my own words. I love it!A Book of Hours: At Prayer with Thomas Merton
