"I was aware of it but never paid attention to it growing up," says Heaton of the Saint Francis Prayer; transformed here subliminally into a verdant mediation of choral voices worthy of standing side-by-side with Rumi's timeless works. "The message is not religious. It's about kindness and love, and not an ordinary state of love." She explains that, like the Coldplay song, this prayer kept serendipitously popping up in the playlist of her life — on a mass card, behind her mattress on the floor. She loved it, and so it made it into this Honeycomb. And that's all it took.
