HILDEGARD VON BINGEN
Hildegard (1098-1179) was a remarkable woman, a 'first' in many fields. At a time when few women wrote, she produced major works of theology, music and visionary writings. She used the curative powers of music and natural objects for healing. She is the first composer whose biography is known. Her story is an inspirational account of an irresistible spirit and vibrant intellect overcoming social, physical, cultural, gender barriers
'powerfully dramatic energy'

'the vocal artistry is at a very high level¡K neither Evelyn Tubb nor Ansy Boothroyd try to steal the show. ¡KIf I were forced to limit my library to only one recording of music by Hildegard von Bingen, this would be it.'
