In olden times, when a person wished to express something
sacred and holy, they were not allowed to speak about it, they
could only sing. It was recognized that singing contained a
higher power than speech and was a holy activity. There
are still echoes of this ancient practice in some cultures of
the world today. The memory is still present that how we use
our voices to sing and speak can contribute to healing and
peace, in our hearts and in the world.
- Mary Thienes-Schunemann
Tears filled my eyes several times as I listened to the CD that
accompanies this extraordinary song book. It was not just that
the music and singing were so very beautiful, nor was it that
the songs were so well chosen, nor even that they brought back
some of the best memories of my life. It was that Mary's music
is all these things and something much more as well -
The Christmas Star is quite simply a sun-drenched outpouring
of hope and love. What could have been just one more nice
collection of Christmas carols has, through her healing artistry
and deep sensitivity, come into the world a gleaming, golden
gift of life offered to our children and their children beyond.
I can't think of a better gift for your children, your family,
yourself - a true celebration of the Light of Love kindled in
the darkest season.
