Ancient Mother is an extraordinary tapestry of chants all in praise of the divine feminine. Master composer/producer Robert Gass and the 35+ women of the On Wings of Song chorale are joined by indigenous priestesses, shamans and vocal artists including medicine woman Brooke Medicine Eagle, Hawaiian chanter Auntie Edith Kekuhi Kananka’ole, Indian devotional singer Kalpana Mazumber, Yoruba initiate Nurudafina Abena and famed Celtic singer Niorin Ni Riain.
The works included range from a chant by the 12th Century mystic Hildegarde de Bingen to an ecstatic gospel rendition of the Wiccan invocation of casting the circle. All the chants are accompanied by the natural music of Mother Earth – the sounds of ocean, rivers, and a meadow at dawn. This album has become a favorite for women’s circles and rituals around the world, and for all those who want to evoke the beauty and power of the feminine Spirit.
