Named a Wisdom Keeper of the Goddess Spirituality Movement for my Music
In 2013 my CD Chants for the Queen of Heaven was named a “Wisdom Keeper of the Goddess Spirituality Movement" by SageWoman Magazine. It was a great honor, and it validated my life's path. I've always loved music, probably because I grew up in a family where everyone sang. Both my parents knew how to keep my sisters and me from getting rowdy when we traveled in the car. They'd break into song, and we would follow suit.
By the mid-1980s I discovered that I was a minstrel for the Queen of Heaven and Earth. Singing Her praises sets me free. When I'm inspired, Gaia flows through me in song. My recordings, thank offerings to the goddesses who have sparked my creativity, are meant to inspire others.
God respects me when I work, but He loves me when I sing.
Chants for the Queen of Heaven
Inspired by goddesses from around the world, Chants for the Queen of Heaven reflects the richness and variety of many woman-honoring traditions.
An exquisite chant CD with songs from a multitude of cultures, lovely harmonies, an assortment unavailable on other tapes!
...a wonderful and varied collection of multicultural and original chants, performed with spirit and conviction, and arranged using a many-colored palette of instrumental and vocal textures."
Singing the Promise - A Live CD (or cassette)
Singing the Promise, a live recording of earth-centered music, gathers four diverse recording artists on one CD: Carole Eagleheart, Khrysso, Mary Grigolia and Nancy Vedder-Shults. Each musician brings a different perspective to their songs: Khrysso, his background in folklore; Mary, her open-hearted ministry; Carole, her teaching in the Seneca Wolf Clan; and Nancy, her love of ritual and story.
The music on this CD is celebratory, moving, and spirited, running the gamut from simple chant to powerful hymns in honor of the earth. Nancy's songs, never recorded before, include: Hymn to the Earth, Changing Woman, Spirits, My Help is In the Mountain and Green God.
