Paulette Meier

Primary Song Genres: 

Paulette Meier is an American folk singer songwriter. Her first album "Come Join the Circle" includes songs especially aimed at teaching peacemaking skills to children.

Around 2010 Paulette began setting early Quaker quotations to melodies drawing heavily on the feeling and musical qualities of Gregorian chant - as monks have been chanting psalms over many centuries. Two collections of these chants/songs have been released to date "Timeless Quaker Wisdom in Plainsong" and "Wellsprings of Life: Quaker Wisdom in Chant". Both CDs are available from Meier's website: https://www.paulettemeier.com/.

Paulette also performs concerts and participatory workshops using these powerful deeply grounded chants.

Paulette describes how she became involved in this work in a "Quakerspeak" interview: "Paulette Meier: Quaker Faith in Song".
