Medieval and Contemporary poetic music inspired by the works of Saint Hildegard of Bingen


The legendary visionary Saint Hildegard of Bingen is one of the few women of the Middle Ages (and indeed of the whole of the history of music) to have left such a wide variety of writings.

Hildegard’s music is directly inspired by her solitary visions. Her odes, true hymns to life, love, fertility and womankind, illustrate the splendour of liturgical vocal tradition that is normally associated with male voices.

She was looked up to by the leading figures of her time and remains surprisingly modern. Over eight hundred years later, today’s composers are still inspired by her poems and melodies. They humbly offer up a contemporary angle on timeless music.


Repertoire: music by Saint Hildegard of Bingen (12th century); contemporary music by Klaus Huber, Petr Eben, Ivan Moody and others; excerpts from Hildegard’s treatises and correspondence and other texts inspired by them.


Mora Vocis: Four, five or six singers


Duration: 1 hour and 10 minutes (no interlude)
