Description

With The Book of Rounds, October Project offers an album to comfort, heal, and awaken listeners.

Originally composed as “modern mantras” or plainchants for listening or joining in, these contemplative rounds, voiced a cappella, return us to the spiritual origins of all song—the merging of words and music among kindred souls, to illuminate and elevate.

Performed beautifully here by a choir specially created for this album, including members of the band, these tracks evoke the felt experiences of grace, shelter, hope amidst darkness, joy, renewal, and more.

October Project is best known for the albums October Project and Falling Farther In and includes here members Julie Flanders, Marina Belica, and Emil Adler. For more information, visit octoberprojectmusic.com.

Beautiful and inspiring Review by Marcel

Such a beautiful and resonant cycle of songs. These rounds are a joy to listen to and even more inspiring to sing! Modern mantras in English.

How could you not feel uplifted and refreshed by these marvelous songs? My favorite is "Light," an ethereal blend of voices that illuminates!

Vocal Perfection Review by Edwina
Rating

This entire album is an uplifting collection proving the power that music--and more specifically, the voice--has. I welcome this new direction from the band, exploring a stripped sound and joining the a cappella craze. Well done!

Such peaceful elegance, music from and for a gentler realm Review by Ronald
Rating
Rating

In a series of 21 rounds, many in a cappella-form, October Project explore thoughts and emotions of grace and beauty. The imagery is what longtime October Project fans would expect, with richly interwoven words that perfectly match the structure of these gossamer rounds. The words at times are so otherworldly that reflecting on them, listeners are drawn into the very place that October Project found itself in spiritually as they recorded this beautiful work. Highly recommended.

Oh, the power of the human voice! Glorious harmonies give simple words new and diverse meaning. Just as you think this can't get any better, it does! This will grow on you, and you will grow with it.

Choral Gem Review by Nathaniel

As a singer who enjoys choral music, this album is a great introduction to the band for me. Each song embodies such a positive nature, and they are fun to sing along friends! Great job, October Project

Beautifully Transcendent Review by Reine
Rating

I am hooked on these songs! They provide a nice contrast to the highly percussive pop of today. I cannot stop listening to 'Believe'. Such a simple antra with such a beautiful melody.

Wonderful And Introspective Review by Dianne
Rating

The Book of Rounds is more of a contemplative album than I could have expected. Great for studying or just enjoying a solitary moment accompanied by song! I appreciate the simplicity of this album, utilizing the voice as the main (and almost only component), especially in a time of overproduced music.

Excellent piece of work! Congratulations and Thank you! Review by Sofia

I love each and every piece of work in The Book of Rounds. It feels to me like a blessing.

Ecstatic Review by Sarah
Rating

As someone else said, I wish I could gift this to the whole world. I've always loved music, but it never occurred to me that music itself could be a teaching. "Turn" brings me into instant and consistent presence, and throughout, the vocals are cascades of light.

Such food for the soul! Thank you! Wonder if they have "Music Alone Shall Live" Review by Judy

this album makes me feel good
I play it in my car

and opens my heart
I feel it elevate me

Soul Medicine. Vocal Yoga Review by Joy
Rating

Float away on the sound of unaccompanied voices, intertwined, singing songs of hope, love, and joy.

Messages from the heart that will soothe and uplift your spirit, set into the simple, embracing form of musical rounds.
