Simple Chants and Psalms by Margaret Rizza
Light in Our Darkness is a collection of Chants and Psalms. I am grateful to all those who asked me to meet a need for something which could be easily sung.
All the music is underpinned in some way by prayer and many of the pieces were birthed in the horror of September 11, 2001. How can one respond to this terrible violation of everything one holds sacred?
It seems to me and to many people that the only thing which will change and save our wonderful world is prayer and a dialogue of friendship and love between all peoples and between all religions.
Many of the Chants and Psalms are prayer of gratitude and praise, of repentance and reconciliation; a melting pot of anguish and joy, of a longing to be at one with this living light who shines in our darkness leading us into this eternal source of love and peace. Margaret Rizza
