Chant Composer

Paulette Meier, composer and performer of the album Timeless Quaker Wisdom in Plainsong, is a singer/songwriter who in the 80’s began writing songs about peace, justice and the earth. Several years later she discovered the important role that Quakers had played in development of the peace education movement. She began exploring the Quaker faith and attending Quaker meetings. “The more I learned, the more I appreciated the bedrock of spiritual belief and practice that Quaker peacemakers, abolitionists, suffragettes, and human rights activities over the years had been grounded in. The practice of inward seeking, leading to outward action had nourished Friends for over 350 years, and I was drawn to it.”
