18 Feature Chant CD: I Feel Joy This collection features original song chants and instrumental tracks, plus two exciting rhythm tracks for celebrating joy, creating your own chants, and living your limitless life! Donna is delighted to offer these chants that are perfect for services, retreats, conferences, workshops, and seminars. Written in the call and response format, the lyrics and melodies are simple and easy to sing. (Instrumental tracks can be used for sing-a-longs or your listening enjoyment.) The addition of the two rhythm only tracks is a new feature that allows you to create as many of your own chants as you wish! Visit the Listen or CD Store page of Donna s website or type in to learn and hear more! About this CD, Donna writes Music has the power to comfort, heal, inspire and unite us. When we repeat a word or phrase in song, it fills every part of who we are, resonating within the body, mind and spirit like a musical mantra or affirmation. These chants were created to be sung and shared with others as well as for your own spiritual journey. When we open to receive, remember our oneness, release what no longer serves us, and trust we are being guided and led on our perfect path, an amazing abundance of joy is waiting to fill our lives in wonderful new ways. I invite you to celebrate and live your limitless life of infinite possibilities. Sing, share and feel the joy!

19 Songbook Feature: Accompanies Donna s Song Chant CD Out of the Darkness Donna offers a companion songbook for her Out of the Darkness CD. It contains lead sheets with melody and chords plus lyric sheets, and may be used together with the instrumental accompaniment tracks provided on Disc #2 of the CD. These chants are perfect for individual or group singing for services, conferences, retreats, seminars, and classes. Also included in the songbook is information on the meditative, healing Taizé services conducted by Donna. Donna s 2-Disc Song Chant CD Out of the Darkness Donna worked for nearly five years on her well-known chant, two-disc CD, Out of the Darkness. This album is a deeply inspiring musical journey out of the darkness, into the light. It contains 2 CDs Disc #1 presents the compelling yet beautifully comforting vocal collection. The second CD offers Donna s mesmerizing, haunting musical palette of instrumental tracks which can be used for singing or personal listening. Many of these chants are widely used at churches, spiritual centers and conferences. God Is Holding Me has become a mainstay of Taizé services and is also used in healing centers. Check the LISTEN, HER MUSIC and CD STORE website pages to learn more as well as to hear and purchase this two-disc collection. Her SONGBOOK accompanies the CD.

20 Feature CD: Meditation Music When Silence Whispers This serene instrumental CD is a beautifully quiet stream-of-consciousness piano creation entitled When Silence Whispers. A companion to her previous recording Somewhere in the Silence, this release is composed of ten individual one-of-a-kind musical meditations, created and played spontaneously with no pre-planned music and no overdubs or changes. Donna says, I simply showed up and allowed the music to flow and do not remember playing (or even what I played) only that something was asking to be expressed. Both of these gentle, flowing albums explore the depths of "silence" as the listener experiences deep release and rejuvenation. How the music can be used Thoughts from Donna: These selections are musical, but they are not melodic that is, there is no actual melody to distract the listener from hearing one s own inner voice. For this reason, this continually flowing music is ideal for meditation, massage and the healing arts as well as for reflection, renewal and creativity. ID points are given should you wish to reference particular segments of this performance. I chose not to offer titles that way, you are free to create your own personal interpretation.
