Welcome

I'm a Scottish sacred musician, interspiritual minister and singer songwriter now living in rural Vermont.  These songs & reflections are my soul's way of making sense of the beauty, vulnerability and endless richness of this human life. It's a gift and a pleasure to share them with you. 

The new album

Canticle of Creation

Simon de Voil

In cart Not available Out of stock

These songs were, for the most part, recorded during the covid-19 pandemic. They have been my way of centering, a compass as I walk through this time of fear, uncertainty, and vast social injustice. Beneath the visions of the Celtic saints, the songs are composed of prayers and stories that captured places where I felt intimacy and healing pour out from land and people around me, where I found myself astonished by unexpected resilience. It gives me great joy to be able to share them with you.

Thank you to guest musicians:
Mia Kelley: (Beloved Brìghde, Ave Maria, Canticle of Creation, I Am).
Alexa Sunshine Rose (vocals on Magnificat & Diane's Song) and Aimée Ringle (additional guitar on Magnificat)

Topic: The Peace that Passes All Understanding

The more our society "advances", the more potential we seem to have for destruction. Climate catastrophe looms, nuclear warheads proliferate—and the Christian tradition says the answer, somehow, is a baby born to a teenage girl two thousand years ago. How could the birth of one baby bring peace to a world that has never known peace, justice in a world so full of injustice? Are we lying to ourselves, or does Advent really have something to teach us about sowing peace in our troubled world?

We will be having communion, so please have wine and bread (or their equivalents) with you if you join us.
