A Meditation on Satisfaction

This meditation pairs “Whatever I carry” by Shei Sanchez with an old Scottish tune called “Love is the cause of my mourning,” performed by baroque oboe, viola da gamba, and lute. The simple texture and gapped scale of the melody lend the song a feeling of sweet innocence that resonates with the sense of satisfaction in Sanchez’s poem.

LD Music Meditations combines poetry and music to bring soul-soothing and life-affirming art into your day.

Featuring classic and contemporary poetry by Northeast Ohio writers along with curated performances from Les Délices live-performance archives, each episode concludes with prompts for mindfulness or guided listening.
