Lovely! My favorite of hers is O Clarissima Virga.
Hildegard one of those really gifted saints: musician, artist, visionary, a natural historian who contributed to homeopathic medicine. For those interested, I recommend Hildegard of Bingen’s Spiritual Remedies by Wighard Strehlow, the Selected Writings in the Penguin Classics, as well as A Feather on the Breath of God, a music CD by Gothic Voices. One will also see Vision: The Music of HIldegard von Bingen. Purists dismiss it as a New Age distortion. The former work is certainly preferable, but I rather like the modern reinterpretation.
