My Heart Is Moved CD
Carolyn McDade and Friends


My Heart is Moved is the name of the body of music that we are coming to know, and that is coming to know us. Its poetry and music arise from the energies of Creation, Earth, Universe, in conversation with the Earth Charter.
Women gathered locally in 10 regions of North America during the seasons 2006-2007 to sing, reflect, and live into a body of music. Songs written by Carolyn McDade, Norma Luccock and Nancy Nordlie have been given instrumental voice by exquisite musicians.

Pray Rain
Pam Gerrand


Pray Rain CD reflects Pam Gerrand’s evolution as an artist, and chronicles the beauty and pain that has shaped her in the past few years. The sharpness and sweetness of mortality, brought home by her sister’s and best friend’s journey through cancer; the sweet redemption of rain following drought in the land and the heart; the numinous poetry of mystic Rumi; the steely, sinewy surrender to the dark cold of a Canadian winter… all of these are fodder for Gerrand’s soul stirring offering of 11 songs.
