On Tuesday December 13th 2022 the international music ensemble Mountain-Silence is visiting Amsterdam for a special Christmas Peace Concert. With their angelic unisono voices, accompanied by guitar, piano, cello and harmonium, they transport the listener to a deep meditative state of peace, beauty and fulfilment.
Mountain-Silence’s music is characterised by a strong meditative, harmonious and lyrical sound. During their concerts the listener is guided on an inner journey to his or her own source of harmony and tranquillity. By listening consciously to the meditative sounds the listener will discover a spontaneous feeling of peace and joy within.
Mountain-Silence consists of a group of women from Switzerland, Serbia, Austria and Germany that have dedicated themselves to performing the meditative songs and melodies of composer and spiritual teacher Sri Chinmoy. For over three decades they offer their soulful music free of charge in churches all over the world. They’ve also recorded several albums.
‘Father Forgive Them’ words by Jesus, music by Sri Chinmoy, arranged by Mountain-Silence
Members of Mountain-Silence are all students of the Indian meditation master Sri Chinmoy. They lead a spiritual life of daily prayer and meditation, follow a vegetarian diet and practice endurance sports to remain physically fit. They’re also fully active in society and hold regular jobs apart from their musical activities.
Sri Chinmoy (1931-2007) composed over 20,000 devotional and spiritual songs during his lifetime. The overarching theme of his songs is man’s search for a higher life and an inner divinity. Sri Chinmoy’s lyrical melodies form the basis of Mountin-Silence’s arrangements.
