Soprano, Teaching Artist, Director
I am a specialist in the field of medieval music, although I consider myself a musical polymath. I swim in a variety of styles, genres, and time periods, seeking to distill the essence of works, enter into relationship with their creators, and become a clear channel of intention.
I perform with Gothic harp, psaltery, and symphonia, and am the co-founder and director of the award-winning women’s ensemble, Eya Medieval Music.
Offering solo performance, direction, and leadership.
“Mondel sang with a spare, otherworldly radiance… a performance from across the centuries, full of distant and irresistible beauties.”
The Washington Post
Hildegard Von Bingen + Medieval Music
I have been inspired by the legacy of 12th-century mystic and creatrix Hildegard von Bingen since the first time I heard her music over 25 years ago.
Since that time, I have been performing, directing, teaching, and studying her works, distilled into various outlets that I share with a wider audience.
My portfolio includes workshops, masterclasses, and lecture-recitals, presented at Williams College, University of Dayton, Peabody Conservatory of Music, Irish World Academy, Georgetown University, and more.
Offering guest teaching in notation, interpretation, and performance.
Online Course: Singing Hildegard
My signature digital course offering singers, musicians, and fellow mystics a deep look into the notation, practice, and performance of the songs of Hildegard von Bingen.
Sheet Music Library: Symphonia Series
This ongoing digital sheet music project aims to provide free, accessible, and beautiful modern editions of the songs of Hildegard von Bingen.
