Hearth and Heart
(by Jenne)

Audience Count: 5,902




The Story...

This chant, albeit relatively simple, came to me during a ritual to Brigid.

Brigid is my matron goddess, and I tend to do a ritual to her every 20 days. I also light the candles on her altar whenever I practice my musical instruments, do my vocal scales or record music.

When I perform the chant during ritual, I generally do it sans instrumentation, keeping the time with a heartbeat-type rhythm played on my chest. When I decided to record the chant, however, the harp was calling to me -- which seemed apt, as it is an instrument beloved of Brigid. The tinwhistle seemed to add to the mystical atmosphere, and it certainly fits in with the cultural context; Brigid, after all, is a goddess linked to Ireland and Scotland. Admittedly, the instruments are more "traditional" than many I use in my work; some of my other songs feature instruments such as the bulbul tarang, etc.

I've been considering recording a CD of my own chants, perhaps even limiting it to Brigid chants/songs. Part of my personal spiritual practice is the spontaneous creation of chants and music during ritual, often using a simple drum, an ektara, singing bowl or gopichand in the background. My recorded music, however, tends to be songs of the ethereal/wyrd folk sort, although I do have another Brigid song on my album "Anahata, " along with a hymn to the Welsh goddess Blodeuwedd; on my previous album, "Clear Song, " I have a wild-sounding song to the Crone called "Old Woman."

On "Heart and Heart, " the main chant is lower than usual for me -- after all, I'm a lyric soprano. However, you can also hear my usual range in the high-end chant in the background (that's not an octave echo -- I recorded all the vocals here one by one) as well as the middle range descant, which is pretty prominent.

Recorded: Binghamton, NY
Guests/Players: all voices, instruments: Jenne

Technical Notes: Celtic harp, tinwhistle, bell

Artist Profile: Kwannon is the ethereal/wyrd folk project of Jenne Micale, formerly of the strange folk band Belladonna Bouquet.

Her influences range from medieval and ethereal music to opera, chant, Pagan ritual and thealogy, Victorian and Romantic poets, and the Carmina Gadelica.

A classically trained singer, Jenne also uses instruments from around the world, such as the kantele, mountain dulcimer and harp, giving her music a touch of the mysterious and otherworldly.
