Jesse interviews Katy Taylor - who performs original and medieval chant and song that weaves celtic ornamentation with haunting, mystical invocations and prayers.Katy started with school talent shows and singing in chorus, school musicals, and church choirs. During a study-abroad opportunity in Austria in her undergrad years, she acquired a taste for medieval music by singing with Vienna's St. Augustine Church Choir. While living in Vermont in the 90’s, Katy toured with the group Northern Harmony in the United States, Canada, England, and Europe, performing traditional music of all kinds and singing with Peter and Mary Alice Amidon and Tony Barrand. She also sang with the eclectic, traditional music group, the Bayley-Hazen Singers, and with Anima, a medieval women's ensemble. Anima first introduced Katy to the music of 12th c. German mystic Hildegard von Bingen. Katy has recorded 4 of her own CDs, including a Mass commissioned by the Foundation for Universal Sacred Music. Katy sings to feel connected to Truth, Source, the Divine, however you name that. She doesn’t sit down to compose, but often from the inspiration of a poem or a prayer, music rises up within her to become a song. For her, to sing is to channel her particular expression of the Divine into the world. Learn more about Katy at http://www.katytaylor.com/ and http://www.thewingedheart.net/
