From the CD Harmonia Coeli we find the following notes:

“Mountain-Silence is a female vocal and instrumental ensemble from Switzerland, Germany and Austria, who sing Sri Chinmoy’s songs with the accompaniment of violin, cello, harmonium and guitar. They offer their prayerful performances in churches, monasteries and cathedrals throughout Europe, and sing on this album in seven different languages. Included here are songs composed in honor of Pope John Paul II and Mother Theresa, which have been performed for both these world-peace-luminaries.”

Indeed, Mountain-Silence have achieved a high level of expression in the realm of soulful music. Their performances are full of warmth, devotion and heart-moving softness.

Our gratitude to Mountain-Silence for their soulful offering.
