FREE   Listen to the full  In Love with the Mystery Companion Music
Vocals and Spoken Word by Ann Mortifee
Music by Paul Horn, Miles Black and Edward Henderson

The book is accompanied by exquisite music by accomplished musicians and improvisers. Just as the writing in IN LOVE WITH THE MYSTERY was spontaneous and inspired, so also was the creation of the accompanying music. This is not an audio version of the book, but instead is a creative musical expression of the ideas and meaning behind the words in the book. Selected for their evocative power, phrases and passages are spoken and sung within a rich musical environment; the musicians created a resonant sphere in which the meanings and images in the writing could find full expression, often in an active interplay beyond, around and above the words.
The listening experience is enhanced through refined professional recording and mastering using state of the art facilities and craftsmanship.

Length: 46 min, Instrumentation:Vocals, spoken word, flute, guitar, piano
Please note: the first edition of the companion recording was formerly delivered on CD, now it is available to all as a digital download.

Production management and coordination: Nancy Mortifee

Written and performed by Ann Mortifee with music by Paul Horn, Miles Black and Edward Henderson

In Love with the Mystery is a musical accompaniment to Ann’s book of the same name. Selected phrases and passages are spoken and sung within a rich, spontaneous musical environment. The musicians create a resonant sphere in which the ideas and meanings in the writing find full expression, often in an active interplay beyond, around and above the words. (2010)

  • Music
  • Into the Heart of the Sangoma
    “Ann has created a masterpiece in this recording. Her years of travel, spiritual searching, performing, writing and a deep desire to touch bases with her roots in Africa, all come to fruition. I was deeply moved, and I think you will be, too.” Paul Horn
  • Healing Journey
    At the closing ceremony of the Commonwealth Games in Victoria, BC, Ann sang the title song to a worldwide audience of one half a billion people.
  • Serenade at the Doorway
    Two words often used to describe this album are ‘inspirational’ and ‘uplifting’. The songs are especially appreciated by people who are in transition, who are healing from loss, or who are seeking encouragement.
