Music Inspirations during the Fast

I am enjoying this period of prayer and fasting as it has been nourishing to be able to reflect, create and spiritually rejuvenate. I would like to share a most recent rough recording that I made with my daughter (my son played the guitar) a couple of nights ago of the prayer ‘Blessed is the Spot’:

I thought I would also share below several meditative music inspirations that i have recorded over the past year which I often listen to during the fast. If you would like to listen to more rough recordings, you can go to my soundcloud account:

Be thou a Summoner to Love – Reflection by elikamahony

No Refuge Save Thee by elikamahony

Create in Me a Pure Heart – Reflection by elikamahony

Ye are the Stars by elikamahony

Make Thy Beauty to be my Food by elikamahony

Hold Thou My Hand by elikamahony

Bend me into Conformity – Reflection by elikamahony

Lastly I am happy to share an album I recorded specially for the fasting period titled, ‘Meditations for the Fast’.  Have a listen to the songs below:

Meditations for the Fast cover


  1. “Blessed is the spot” has me close to tears this morning, maybe partly from the family harmony coming through. A lovely version!

  2. Thank you for your generosity in every way Bret. I’m so glad to hear you enjoyed our rendition of ‘Blessed is the Spot’. I am always beyond elated when I have the opportunity to record with my children.
