healing, spirituality and consciousness." David Fontana, a professor

Susan Elizabeth Hale - Author Sacred Space - Sacred Sound:
The Acoustic Mysteries of Holy Places. Quest Books,
July 2007. www.songkeeper.net
Susan Hale takes us on a spiritual autobiographical sound journey
and re-enchants the world around us. She profoundly heightens our
awareness of the natural processes and the creation of living forms
through sound while easily supplying a wealth of knowledge of the
sound phenomena and the history of the sacred sites. She personally
introduces us to significant figures in the field of sound research
and music who offer their insights and wisdom. This is a deeply heartfelt
sonic travelogue that presents us with familiar landscapes and great
architectural spaces and transforms them into magical, enthralling
temples of harmony. Like an intuitive acoustic archaelogist, Hale
writes so totally from deep personal experience that we are brought
into the living presence of the sacred spaces from around the world.
Sacred Space Sacred Sound lends fresh meaning to the word "sacred"
and is a glorious hymn to both the ecstasy and serenity to be found
in great architectural spaces and Nature itself..
