ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
A musical journey out of the darkness...into the light


Donna invites you to listen while reading these notes...

ABOUT THIS ALBUM
This 2-disc CD is a companion recording to Donna's first song chant album, “Into the Light.” Originally begun in 2001, this long-awaited release provides a musical journey through original song chants that express searching, hope, healing, joy, gratitude and possibility. Donna invites you to make and use these as your personal musical affirmations in your own healing journey.

ABOUT THE TWO DISCS
Disc One is highlighted by original vocal recordings as well as a quietly soothing instrumental piano meditation. There is also a beautiful duet featuring Donna and vocalist Gregory Fisher. Listeners can hear the layers of intricate harmonies on the a capella vocal montages “Infinite…” and “Possibility (Reprise).” (Donna sang all the vocals on this album.) The well known “Cradle Me (Reprise)”--already in use at Taize services in churches and at conferences and retreats throughout the country--was built from the tracks of the full-length song.

Disc Two features instrumental tracks that may be used for performances and group singing but are also provided purely for listening enjoyment to create a beautiful and inspiring background for creativity, contemplation and celebration. The progression of these songs begins in quiet sadness and aloneness then gradually moves forward into healing, grace and joy. All the instrumental tracks on Disc Two follow the vocal versions on Disc One. (Certain performance tracks with background vocals can be specially ordered. Contact Quarterlight Productions for more information.)


These words are written by Donna and appear inside the album:

There are times when our hearts are broken and our lives torn apart—times of sadness, loss and grief that seem too great to bear. In those moments, shadows deepen to an endless night and we wonder if we will ever again step out of the darkness…into the light….

This is a musical journey of healing
It begins at that deepest hour of darkness and brokenness
Slowly remembering
releasing
receiving
hope
peace
and blessings
of Infinite Love and Possibility


Brokenness can bring our greatest blessings.
Even when we do not know how, something much larger than we are knows.
It never leaves us, holding us even when we feel there is nothing and no one there.
It is Love.
Infinite Love.

May this music bring you hope, bring you peace, bring you joy. May it remind you that you are a light in this world and that you are one with that Infinite Love.

And may you be blessed beyond all measure.

Dr. Donna Goldstein

Very healing..
First heard Donna's music at the Sacred Center in South Florida loved hearing the progression-very powerful and gentle to my spirit.During a particularly rough time , I lay in a darkened room on my couch, sobbing and let the music wash over me- it was so soothing , like Donna was singing me a lullaby of warmth and grace... Just bought another copy for a dear friend who is afraid she may never emerge fron her debilitating depresssion- I know this CD will help on a very deep level as it certainly has done for me!

Life changing! Heart opening! A healing so deep! Pure Love!
This is energetic medicine in it's purest most beautiful form! Profoundly beautiful music and lyrics! Touches a place so deep inside... peeling away the layers of sadness and protection we have placed around our hearts. With the layers of protection peeled away, we are free! All that is left within the listener is the blue flame of pure Consciousness... pure Oneness with the Devine! Bliss beyond measure! All Donna's albums are magnificent! Thank you Donna!! Love, Carole Johnson from Pacific Coast Church in Monterey, CA
