Anáil Dé – The Breath of God explores the threads of connection woven through music, ritual and spiritual expression. Drawing on the worlds of performance studies, ethnomusicology, music therapy, ritual studies, theology, liturgy, and philosophy, this interdisciplinary volume presents a unique mosaic of musical, theoretical and spiritual voices.
From Celtic Christian liturgy to the Bira rituals of the Shona in Zimbabwe, the sounds and spaces of spiritual expression are probed from cultural, historical and philosophical perspectives. Anail De – the Breath of God, draws on musical worlds as diverse as the Benedictine community at Glenstal Abbey, Limerick; the Southern Methodist University, Dallas; and the School of Oriental and African Studies, London.
