These exquisite and
rare musical creations are composed, toned and sang by Dr. Ann Marie
One of the unique
characteristics of these canticle songs is that they represent a
sacred inversion of the usual usage or experience of a hymn or
spiritual song. Historically, hymns or worshipful songs are sung in
order to feel a communion with God, to let go of cares or worry, to
lift the heart to acknowledge God. Often, unwittingly this maintains
a feeling of a separate God in the sky, looking down, for which we
feel a loving gratitude, and to which we are trying to worship.
These songs inverse
that. Dr. Nielsen, a spiritual mother of holy song, deeply feels the
immense and ineffable holy joy, the eternal Father Mother God Love.
Alive as the sacred Light of That, she then “senses” with
spiritual faculties an inaudible “song.” She feels the worship,
the adoration, the Formless Love Light, as pre-song holy joy. Then a
melody “flows down’ into the perceived range of hearing with the
inner ear. When the song spontaneously recurs often enough (not being
written down with musical notes), she can sing or recall it at will.
At some point, toning the melody, words often arise, marrying the
hauntingly sacred songs and heart warming lyrics in one song—for
Thus, being the
worshipful devotion Presence comes “first” and canticle song
“second.” Not the other way around. These are not toned to reach
God, or worship God, they arise from aliveness as Eternal Love first,
and are sung an an expression of that devotion.

As of January 2017,
Dr. Nielsen has composed over 15 canticle songs ranging from 2 to 16
minutes in length. Not one song has been written with an intention to
write or compose, or with any thought to the song. These songs will
be recorded, one by one, during the upcoming year and posted on this
original composition (written on the heart, not on paper)
spontaneously arise at any time or activity of the day—in
meditation, walking in the serenity of the courtyard gardens, driving
through heavy traffic on the highway, communing with the ospreys
flying overhead, answering the prayer request of a hurting one.
They arise with an
immense holy and sacred feel. Often a sweet, tender, wild enchantment
and magicalness alights. Magicalness differs from magic. These are
not magic, they are the miraculousness, the reflected miracle, of our
Essential Self—alive with its innocence, wonderment, and
ecstatic joy. These holy songs allow our heart to feel its immense
Love for our Creator and to remember the Original Light of Home.
