David Hykes

I recently discovered this very interesting gentleman. David Hykes is a long time composer-singer from New York that helped spur the contemplative music scene back in the mid-70's and is still going at it with his Harmonic Chant and his Harmonic Choir.

He has a pretty cool website that gives some interesting bits of info about himself as well as his connections with many spiritual leaders and many different festivals and programs and so forth. I have been really into this sort of meditative, transportive music lately. (which, funny enough, spurred from a long bout with listening to nothing but morton feldman, in particular the string quartets). 

anyhow, worth some listening, I have been enjoying several of his CD's lately... they are available at Amazon and other fine conglomerate retailers.
