In this rich exploration of music, authors Don and Emily Saliersinterweave their own stories as well as those of others to reflecton the what, the how, and the why of music asa key aspect of spirituality in our lives. As an Indigo Girl,folk-rock singer-songwriter, Emily performs in primarily secularsettings, while her father, Don - composer, cantor, and churchmusician - writes and arranges for church congregations. Theiraudiences may differ but both father and daughter understand theprofound spirituality of music and have personally witnessed howtheir music brings healing to people no matter what the setting orcircumstance. A Song to Sing, A Life to Live bridges twogenerations, two approaches to spirituality, and two genres ofmusic - the music of Saturday night and Sunday morning. Don andEmily Saliers reflect on such topics as music and justice, musicand grief, music and delight, and music and hope. They open the wayfor those who seek to embrace new spiritual practices by creatingmusic, sharing music, and developing their musical skills as aspiritual practice.
