Album Notes
The all new version of "The Psalms of RA" is a single CD plus book that is entirely focused on the ancient Egyptian-based material from the original 2 CD set. The 56 minute CD comes inside a beautifully packaged, 48 page, full color, hard cover book that is the size of a standard CD jewel case. The book includes full descriptions of every song, including instrumentation, history and cosmology, with texts in English, German and French.. All the song texts are also provided, from the original hieroglyphic versions to the phoenetic pronunciations to the translations. The artwork and photography of composer Jim Berenholtz illustrates the book throughout its 48 pages. The photographs are exclusively drawn from Jim's extensive travels to ancient sacred sites in Egypt and the Sudan. This highly informative and illuminating product is ideal for world music lovers, Egyptology enthusiasts, history buffs, students of metaphysics, and anyone who appreciates the art and wisdom of ancient civilizations.

Experience the acoustic ritual of "The Psalms of RA", as it takes you on a journey from sunrise to sunset to sunrise again, paralleling the journey of the soul.

Jim Berenholtz is a composer of music for theatre, dance, film and the concert stage. He graduated Amherst College in 1979 with a degree in composition and ethnomusicology, and has devoted his musical life to the cross-cultural fusion of Western and non-Western musical instruments and styles. He is a member of the American Composers Alliance, the composer of the Native American opera "Buffalo Nation", and co-founder of the musical duo Xochimoki, a leading force since the 1980's in the revival of the ancient music of the Aztec, Maya and other pre-Columbian civilizations. He is a veteran performer with the Los Angeles Music Center On Tour, and has given concerts at peace conferences and sacred sites throughout the world, including at the Pyramids of Giza in Egypt. Jim has produced eight recordings on cassette, both solo and collaborative. "The Psalms of RA" is his first CD project. He has also created the artwork and photography for the CD.
