ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Imagine Christmas carols you love, but with lyrics that include the Divine Feminine to celebrate the sacredness of all people and all creation!

Imagine Christmas carols that sing of peace for all people and for the earth.

“Sing of Peace” brings inspiration, healing, and empowerment through new inclusive lyrics to familiar Christmas tunes, sung in sublime harmonies by Devi Vaani.

“These Christmas songs are for anyone who is looking for rich, creative, and inclusive words to inhabit comforting and familiar tunes,” writes Lutheran theologian Dr. Caryn D. Riswold in her Patheos blog.

Devi Vaani is a trio of women who write and perform music in praise of the Divine Feminine for ritual, empowerment, and justice, in the hopes that the world will re-awaken to the goodness of the Mother and once again honor all women as sacred beings in Her image. They bring a luxurious folk/acoustic sound, layered with rich vocal harmonies and echoing with primal drumbeats. Their music is joyful, sweet, fierce, hopeful, flowing—and always powerful.

Lana Dalberg adds her beautiful violin accompaniment to most of the songs on “Sing of Peace." She is an activist-fundraiser, mother, and published author. Her most recent book, Birthing God: Women’s Experiences of the Divine, explores women’s stories of spirituality and faith.

Lyricist Jann Aldredge-Clanton is an ordained minister, teacher, and author of books and hymnbooks that focus on including female names and images of the Divine in order to bring equality, justice, and peace in the world. She began writing hymn lyrics in 1994 in the Christmas season when all the male images in traditional carols felt like stones pelting her spirit. She longed to hear and sing Christmas carols that included biblical female images, so she began to write them. From experience she knew that words sung in sacred rituals carry great power to shape belief and action because the music embeds the words in our memories.

Sing of Peace reclaims and amplifies the themes of peace, joy, hope, awe, and love that so much of the world associates with the Christmas season. It includes the experiences of women, minorities, and all oppressed people who are not directly referenced in traditional Christmas music. Including multicultural biblical female divine names and images, Sing of Peace affirms the sacred value of females throughout the world who continue to suffer from violence and abuse. This Christmas album celebrates the sacredness of all people and all creation. It weaves the magic and mystery of Christmas with urgent cries for justice, an end to suffering, and respect and dignity for all beings
