Voxfire Brings Medieval Chants to the 21st Century

Remember when Gothic chant was all the rage in the 1990s with albums of Benedictine Monks and Abbess Hildegard von Bingen hymns heard in all kinds of configurations by artists like Sequentia, Richard Souther, Vox and Enigma? A band called Voxfire continues that tradition in the 21st century, taking Medieval chants and turning them into free-floating ambient expanses with beautiful vocals. We talk with the members of Voxfire who infuse their chants with ambient moods, minimalist expanses and even blues harmonica.
