Build a House for men and birds.

Build a House for men and birds.
Sit with them and play music.
For a day, for just one day,
talk about that which disturbs no one
and bring some peace,my friend,
into your beautiful eyes.

2. A cat's purr is also therapeutic.

Until my apartment is animal-friendly again (clutter problems) I have to make do with the recorded kind of purring

4. Yes it is :)

The owner's a pretty cool guy, and based in Belgium. I may have posted a thread around here of the various pages he has with a religious and/or spiritual background. Such as Beatae Memoriae and Anamnesis.

6. You'll love this one, and he just added it today:

Gregorian Voices - Early Roman Catholic Church Song Generator

[font size="4"]Time Travel[/font]

Gregorian Chant first came to exist in the 9th and 10th centuries in Western and Central Europe, and were named after the Pope St. Gregory the Great (540-604 A.D). These chants are performed A Capella, without musical support, and sung in Latin. Latin had been the language in use throughout the Western Church almost since its foundation. When the Second Vatican Council introduced the use of native language in the Mass instead of Latin, in 1962, the tradition of Gregorian Chants started to decline. Today, Gregorian Chants are rarely sung during offices anymore, but can be heard in some retired monasteries. The sound created by the Monks performing Gregorian Chants, transports you to a time long gone.

These chants had such long tradition more than ten centuries because they probably touch deep in one's very soul and spirituality, and brought a marvellous sense of inner peace. Music knows neither area, time nor language. If you wish, allow yourself to escape your busy life for a while, and re-connect with yourself. Close your eyes, and let the ancient sounds of Monks carry you away.

The sound quality on this generator is amazing. You will be able to hear the chanting lightly echoing off the pillars and rafters. Two recording locations have been used, one close to the singers, and one at the rear of the church, at a great distance from the choir. Those recordings have been made available by means of separate sliders, allowing you to adjust the reverberation level to your liking. Enjoy!

He ain't kidding on that last bit. The sound is amazing! I can see having this one on often

7. You weren't kidding.

 

Gorgeous sounds.

For all the legalism in the Catholic Chrch, these chants really bring out its spiritual side.
