Morning Prayer Improv
sung by John Jones

Improvised sung quotations from various spiritual texts,
including The Bible  and Science and Health  (Mary Baker Eddy).

The purpose of this project is to joyfully acknoweldge spiritual Truth with spontaneous song. The level of improvisation varies - sometimes it is completely improvised and the first take is released, whereas other times a piece of existing music is used and a few takes are recorded before releasing. In any case, it is always a fresh and inspired activity.

From Science and Health with Key to the Sciptures by Mary Baker Eddy:
"Mind is not necessarily dependent upon educational processes. It possesses of itself all beauty and poetry, and the power of expressing them. Spirit, God, is heard when the senses are silent. We are all capable of more than we do. The influence or action of Soul confers a freedom, which explains the phenomena of improvisation and the fervor of untutored lips." (p.89:18-24)
