Be Still and Know –
Hebrew Chant of David P. Goldstein
Be Still and Know is my third collection of Hebrew Chants, and adds to the collection established in my CDs Kavanot and Kumi Ori, allowing the listener to delve into sacred intentions from the Jewish liturgy and the Hebrew Bible. The focus of this collection is on the stillness, searching for God in the quietness of our hearts.
Translation: I am peace.
I am filled with gratitude for so many people on this project. Thanks go to my husband Jeffry Johnson, for his loving support and gift of time and energy. I welcome Dave Hidek to the team, providing amazing synthetic sounds and arrangements on 3 of the tracks. Thanks to my buddy Julie Newman for squeezing in the time and lending her gifts to this project, and to the wonderful musicians Katy Williams, Eva Rainforth, Stephanie Ballard, Todd Farwell, and of course Jeffry Johnson, for their beautiful voices and spirit. Thanks also to Jack Rago, who just joined the Tikkun team for this project, for providing amazing drumbeats. Larry Luther at Mr. Smalls Studio is a genius at recording and mixing, and Katie Smerick Hammer melded the artwork into a gorgeous CD package.
My sweet friend Ronnie Weyl once again lent her creative force to the cover design. Thank you, Ronnie, for your friendship and your deep talent.
