Hildegard von Bingen

Born: 1098. Died: 1179. Lived in: Germany

Hildegard of Bingen began having visions as a child, but it wasn't until she was in her forties that her revelations in Christianity made her turn to composing. She founded convents and wrote plays, liturgies and hymns in praise of saints. Incredibly prolific, she was also considered a healer and early theologian and she was venerated in the church. Her compositions continue to be performed and recorded today.

Ave Generosa : SATB divisi : Ola Gjielo : Kantorei Denver : WW1688 : 78514701116

Ola Gjielo : Ave Generosa

This SATB setting of Hildegard von Bingen's Ave Generosa text uses a hauntingly joyful tonality, paying homage to the mysterious story of Mary. A beautiful middle section is surrounded by contrasting, modal beginning and ending sections. The juxtaposition of sustained and moving moments holds true to the composer's style, while the harmonic structure and vocal construction offer something very fresh.

Arranger: Ola Gjielo Performed By: Kantorei Denver

Green Music : SSAA : Kirke Mechem : Sheet Music : 50600247 : 888680070090 : 149502329X

Kirke Mechem : Green Music

The green movement seems so contemporary, it comes as a shock to find the words of this music were written by Hildegard von Bingen of the 12th century. Kirke Mechem has created a round that cleverly employs an unending circle-of-fifths progression to capture the never stopping reality of the round. Commissioned by the Peninsula Women's Chorus, Martin Benvenuto, Artistic Director. Duration: Ca. 4 minutes 30 seconds

Lee Kesselman : O Frondens Virga

Written for the Wheaton College Christmas Festival, this work with a text by Christian mystic, Hildegard of Bingen, should feel very free, personal and almost improvisational. The close harmony requires careful attention to balance among the parts and is worthy of any fine women's choir.

This is a bold reimagining of Hildegard's chant, both tune and text.

The Hildegard Motets: 1. O verbum Patris : SATB divisi : Frank Ferko : Sheet Music : 4988

Frank Ferko : The Hildegard Motets: 1. O verbum Patris

The Hildegard Motets comprise a cycle of nine unaccompanied choral motets using texts by the 12th century abbess Hildegard von Bingen (1098-1179). The texts were extracted from Hildegard's opus of more than seventy sacred poems titled Symphinia armonie celestium revelationum. Although these poems have been translated into English (more than once) and some of the translations are quite brilliant, I chose to set the original Latin texts as I felt they remained closer to Hildegard's own thoughts. The nine poems used in this cycle were selected according to their appropriateness to seasons in the Christian liturgical caldendar (thus, most of them can be sung in specific liturgical settings) and to their appropriateness to the structured plan of this cycle as well as for their sheer poetic beauty. Hildegard's poetic vocabulary was unusual and unique; she frequently used language that is not found in standard Latin liturgical texts. As with the music sh
