People at Prayer is a 24-song collection of religious ritual, meditation, and devotion. Drawn from the UNESCO Collection of Traditional Music, the selections come from around the world and feature a vast diversity of expression. In addition to songs and prayers from Christian churches, Islamic tradition, and Buddhist ritual, you can hear a ceremony of the Tepehuanes of Mexico, an Aka Pygmy invocation from the Central African Republic, a ceremony performed by the orchestra of the Cambodian Royal Palace, a bhajan (devotional song) sung by a wandering Hindu sadhu (holy man), and a hymn from the Oceania island republic Vanuatu. Liner notes provide an English translation of each title, as well as a brief history for each track.
