The Stillness Inside: The Meditation Music of Paul Horn
In 1968, Paul Horn slipped into the Taj Mahal with a flute and a tape recorder—and created an improvisational masterpiece that would signify the birth of a new genre in music. With a rare ability to capture in music the essence of sacred space, Horn went on to record a landmark series of albums in noted spiritual sites across the globe. On The Stillness Inside, this two-time Grammy winner shares for the first time his favorite compositions for the exploration of the sacred interior that each one of us holds within.
Paul Horn has released dozens of recordings over a 50-year career, including the groundbreaking Inside the Taj Mahal, the album that defined new age music and sold more than 1 million copies. His recorded output covers classical, jazz, pop, new age and world music. In 1966 he traveled to India to study meditation with Maharishi Mahesh Yogi. He has continued to travel, recording in sacred spaces from Canyon de Chelly (with R. Carlos Nakai) to the cathedrals of Russia. He now splits his time between British Columbia and the American Southwest.

I spent hours and hours listening with so much pleasure to the music that Paul recorded in such sacred sites as The Great Pyramid, the Taj Mahal, the beautiful Kazamieras Cathedral of Lithuania, and the Grand Assembly Hall of the Potala Palace, where the Dalai Lama spent his boyhood. I loved every moment of it. What peace. What beauty. I chose the pieces that I thought would allow each of us to travel deeper into ourselves carried on the waves of his golden flute. – Ann Mortifee, Producer of “The Stillness Inside”
