Music: favorite performances

Nearly all the music you’ll hear at Ananda is written by Swami Kriyananda, a prolific composer of some 400 pieces. His music is unusually beautiful, with a healing and spiritual power that touches many. For Ananda singers, the music is a joyful part of our spiritual practice and seva (service) to listeners. Pieces by other composers are at the bottom, and are also included with holiday concert sets.
