Album Notes
In The Breathing of the World Rob Silvan has gathered together some of the world's great Sacred poetry and created song settings. The poems are diverse:
Emily Dickinson's words about hope inspire a jazz feeling; WB Yeats beloved
poem about the Lake Isle of Innisfree with lone male voice and piano is
reminiscent of Ireland. Flute and cello adorn the Sufi poetry of Rumi and Kabir and Hafiz that is brought to song-life by Megan Sullivan and Michael Crouch.
There is a jazz-blues irony inspired by the joy and yearning of the Psalms.

The instrumentation gathers around the piano of Rob Silvan. Bass and drums and percussion and saxophones, flute and cello lend an expanded jazz feeling
that always supports the words of these transcendant poems. There is vocal
harmony and extended flute and cello passages, all meant to convey these
healing words more deeply into the heart.
