Stillwater: Songs & Chants

An Album of Contemporary Spiritual Music


A PDF booklet containing all lyrics is available to download along with the song tracks.

This is an album of contemporary chants and intuitive songportraits, recorded live through several years of musical gatherings and private sessions, orchestrated afterwards in the studio. It offers the listener an audible window into the globally emergant world of devotional ‘heart singing’, as well as the unique artistry of intuitive songmaking.

Many of the chants (repeated choruses) originated as 'songportraits'- spontaneous, intuitively created songs responding to one person's request or theme . Several of these original songportraits are included on the album, with orchestration underscoring the music and words.

This album features recordings from across Germany: Bad Herrenalb, Bobingen, Burgau, Melle, Munich, Nürnberg, as well as from Assisi, Italy. With great appreciation for the singers and hosts of ChantWave song gatherings and seminars, thank you for your beautiful expression.

"Hundreds of communities over the decades have been deeply affected by Michael Stillwater's songs and spiritual leadership, and now Michael has produced a splendid album of these songs for all to enjoy again and again.

"Sing along with Michael while listening to these gems accompanied by him on guitar--memorable songs that have brought people together to celebrate joy, love, caring for others and devotion to God.

"Support Michael's continuing work by obtaining a copy of this marvelous CD that will enrich your life and that of your family for time to come."
