Today one of the last official workshops of the 208 Maryland Folk Musicians Retreat was a group meditation session where we were introduced to the lovely sounds of the harmonium.

It was wonderful.

I did not record the workshop, but I do have an interesting recording of the harmonium.

I recorded this harmonium player in 2013 at Turo Church during a memorial service for victims of the Peshawar church bombing. I have always heard the Psalms read aloud, but at this service the mourning families sang to God. I do not know the language, but the music knows no barriers.

Psalm 4

Psalm 23
