ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes

"A masterpiece both in the spiritual and artistic arenas."
- Cynthia Bourgeault, author, teacher, The Wisdom Jesus, The Meaning of Mary Magdalene

"Nothing less than divine love pulses through these songs. The album is a transformational blend of spoken word and mystic refrains that follows the trajectory of Merton's heart and life. Along the way, God's heart itself beats. It's enough to make you weep."
- Mark Longhurst, Ordinary Mystic

"Beautiful vocals, rich music, profound meditations from the life and work of Thomas Merton... Alana Levandoski has woven a contemplative musical tapestry for all who want to deepen their spiritual lives."
- Brian D. McLaren, author, The Great Spiritual Migration and We Make the Road By Walking

“Point Vierge left me feeling still and quiet. It is a luminous work, filled with spiritual darkness and light. It is inspiring as well as sobering. One hears Merton’s voice, literally, at times, but throughout, singing to us. Many of us miss that voice, that witness, but here we have it once again.”
-Jon M. Sweeney, editor, A Course in Christian Mysticism by Thomas Merton; coauthor, Meister Eckhart's Book of the Heart


"An inspiring soundtrack for meditation, renewal, and insight!”
— Daniel P. Horan, OFM, author, The Franciscan Heart of Thomas Merton: A New Look at the Spiritual Inspiration of His Life, Thought, and Writing


"Alana Levandoski's work always has an aliveness to it, but her latest collaboration with James Finley, Point Vierge - The Journey of Thomas Merton in Song, is also an offering/work/resource that creates a space/a womb that nurtures our paths of longing and leads listeners into surrender and eucharistic oneness. Listen, receive…and disappear into God.”
- Travis Reed, Founder/Filmmaker, The Work of the People


"A beautiful, contemplative album that brings us to the heart of Merton's message."
- Danielle Shroyer, author, Where Jesus Prayed, Original Blessing
