My most recent recording is a song that I first heard sung by my friend Steve Bell. Steve is a Juno Award-winning artist out of Winnipeg whom I’ve had the pleasure of working with over the years (“Unto the Least of These” duet on One Spirit). This song was so captivating and haunted my spirit in such a way that I knew I had to someday record it. It’s called Deep Calls To Deep and when I asked Steve about the story behind it, here’s what he said:
“I learned the song in a remote monastery in the Himalayan mountains of Darjeeling, India. It was the song a group of young Jesuit priests sang together each night before going to bed. They, of course, sang and played it with traditional Indian instruments with all the vocal particularities the Indian ear is used to hearing. Stunning really.”
As I am in the process of finishing the recording of my new album – “Wonders In the Deep” – it seemed perfectly appropriate to include this beautiful song of prayer. Listen now to Deep Calls To Deep.
