This CD is a musical rendition of the venerated prayer given to humanity by ascended spiritual master Djwhal Khul. Barbara Markay has successfully melded the spiritual message of The Great Invocation with a beautiful melody and orchestration that further enhances the deep meaning and experience of this popular prayer. The addition of music and voice creates a powerful vehicle for meditation. If you're new to this prayer, you will find yourself immersed in a wonderful new experience. Those already familiar with The Great Invocation will find a new and added depth with this new version. Singer-Songwriter BARBARA MARKAY has studied piano since she was a child. At the precocious age of ten she won a scholarship to the prestigious Juilliard School of Music where she graduated from the college division as a composer and pianist.
