Throughout the several decades of the Consort’s journey, the most perennial question we’ve been asked has been: “What do you call your music?” “Earth Music” is the response Paul has most often given, as that term embraces the totality of their field of play, and their long-going aspirations to celebrate the cultures and creatures of the whole Earth.

Paul felt it was time to put forth the answer with music, in the form of an album. Included are pieces celebrating the Grand Canyon, the old-growth forest of our Northwest, the ocean, the moon, and our star, the sun, with its quadzillions of dancing particles. Consorting with the Paul Winter Consort are representative voices from what we think of as “the greater symphony of the Earth”: Spotted Owl, Timber Wolf, African Fish Eagle, and Humpback Whale. And no album or concert to Paul, is complete without an offering from the great mentor of our Consort heritage, Johann Sebastian Bach, whose music awakens in Paul a resonance with the soul of the Earth.

“We have been blessed to have had many opportunities and adventures over the years, and to have been able to pursue our mission of creating music of beauty in the service of the community of all life.

Thank you for listening”
