Welcome

I'm a Scottish sacred musician, interspiritual minister and singer songwriter now living in rural Vermont.  These songs & reflections are my soul's way of making sense of the beauty, vulnerability and endless richness of this human life. It's a gift and a pleasure to share them with you. 

The brand new album

Canticle of Creation

Simon de Voil

In cart Not available Out of stock

These songs were, for the most part, recorded during the covid-19 pandemic. They have been my way of centering, a compass as I walk through this time of fear, uncertainty, and vast social injustice. Beneath the visions of the Celtic saints, the songs are composed of prayers and stories that captured places where I felt intimacy and healing pour out from land and people around me, where I found myself astonished by unexpected resilience. It gives me great joy to be able to share them with you.

Thank you to guest musicians:
Mia Kelley: (Beloved Brìghde, Ave Maria, Canticle of Creation, I Am).
Alexa Sunshine Rose (vocals on Magnificat & Diane's Song) and Aimée Ringle (additional guitar on Magnificat)

Zoom Workshop: Queer eye for Godde

 —  —

Abbey of the Arts

Cost & Registration details are here: https://abbeyofthearts.com/calendar/queer-eye-for-godde/

When we don't fit the boundaries of the map that's been given to us, we have to find our own way forward. When we don't hear ourselves reflected in the language of the culture we inherit, we have to tell our own stories. Painful as this search for authenticity can be, it can also be a path that's rich with wisdom, creativity, and healing. And as we learn to find our own internal compass, we become more free to shine our unique divine light in the world.

Many queer people of faith know in our bones that the story of Godde we've inherited is simply not big enough to hold all the truth, beauty, and pain of this world. We know that Godde is in us, as we are in Godde, and an expansive, diverse vision of Godde belongs to all of us.

As a transgender interfaith minister, Rev Simon Ruth de Voil has spent his life learning to stand in his loving, embracing, and wildly unconventional vision of Godde. He encourages everyone—regardless of identity or sexual orientation—to seek out their own authentic and individual relationship with the Godde that speaks in their heart.

This afternoon workshop will combine short lectures with music, storytelling, and practices to help listen our way toward the unique voice of Godde in each of us. All are welcome, no matter what your gender or sexual orientation. We all have wisdom to learn here.
