Friends tell me that Music of Silence is my most readable book; for this I am book silence music Br. Davidgrateful to Sharon Lebell, as I am grateful to Kathleen Norris for her Introduction. Kathleen (the author of Cloister Walk) has done so much to make the rich heritage of monastic tradition available to people outside the monastic enclosure. In a small way, my book tries to do the same. Please visit the companion feature on this website called the Meet the Angel of the Hour which presents the chants for the Hours as performed by a group of monks from the Mount Saviour Monastery in Pine City, New York. – Br.
