  • From the very first sounds of Bill Cunliffe’s compositions, one’s soul becomes deeply calmed. Then begins a gentle transformational journey from feelings of serenity and divine companionship to joyful swaying and praise to tears of release and healing to a newfound confidence that one is empowered to go into the world to make it as beautiful as the music one has just heard. We at All Saints, Pasadena, have been fortunate to receive the singular talents of Bill Cunliffe in our worship. Now, with profound gratitude, we celebrate that others through this recording can benefit from this musical strength for the journey.
