How do we listen for the voice of God within the soundscapes of our lives and how do we find our own voice? Our lives are lived against the backdrop of an internal and external soundscape. The sounds, noises and music with which we are surrounded in modern life have spiritual implications. There is also a soundtrack within us that plays constantly through memory, dreams, anxiety or thought. What are these soundscapes, and how do we listen for the voice of God within them. How too do we find our own voice? These questions bring together the previous academic interest (history and sociology) and the present, practical life (public ritual, music, and public speaking) of an author who is sensitive to the cadences of modern life, and reflects on this through the prism of Scripture and the tradition.

Lucy Winkett

Lucy Winkett is Canon Precentor of St Paul's Cathedral, with particular responsibility for music and liturgy. Before ordination, she trained as a soprano, and lived in a L'Arche community. She is a contributor to Radio 4's Thought for the Day, speaks regularly at Greenbelt Arts Festival, writes a monthly column for Third Way magazine and is a founding adviser for the public theology thinktank Theos. She combines her cathedral ministry with chairing the governors of a new Church of England Academy in North London, leading retreats, and speaking and writing on culture, gender and religion.
