In Search of The Great Song, a Song Without Borders documentary series by Michael Stillwater, explores and celebrates the song within us, connecting and surrounding us. Filmed in America, Europe, Australia and India, it features artists, educators, scientists, spiritual teachers and 'ordinary people' expressing a multitude of perspectives on this universal concept.

In 'Hymn to The Great Song', an excerpt from the feature-length documentary 'In Search of the Great Song' (2016), Brother David Steindl-Rast, a Benedictine monk known worldwide for his contribution to interfaith dialogue and advocacy for the power of gratitude, speaks of song born in silence, St. Francis, and the poetry of Rainer Maria Rilke.

"There is really only one song, and it's the Great Song, the cosmic song, the song that all things, animals, plants and humans sing in their deepest heart. And every song that a human sings with his or her voice is only an expression of that one Great Song that is there from the beginning and will be there after the end." -Br. David Steindl-Rast

Filmed at Le Celle Franciscan Monastery in Cortona, Italy, with additional filming at Assisi, Italy.
