Hildegard of Bingen

1098 - September 17, 1179
born in Bemersheim, Germany, composed during the Medieval period
Hildegard of Bingen (1098-1179), the first composer whose biography is known, was one of the most remarkable and forceful individuals in Medieval Europe. Placed in a convent as a child, she took vows and eventually became an abbess, founding two convents of her own. A visionary mystic, she was also accomplished as a poet, painter, naturalist, theologian, and preacher, and she served as an advisor to political and religious leaders. Her music, which is notable for its distinctive departures from the conventions of plainchant, includes over 70 hymns, antiphons, and sequences, and the first surviving liturgical drama Ordo Virtutem. ~ Stephen Eddins, Rovi

How bout God - in praise of Him.

Fulfills the mystics's guidance to experience mind before thought
Haunting and so ,...applicab l e to the human condition,ev e n now 900 years later.
I have seldom heard a more beautiful work for a women's choir. Absolutely wonderful
Her Spirit is a Vessel of Christos!
For my Gregorian-Fr i e n d O' Erin...it's Our Lord's Day! Peace
Women like this ought to live a thousand years....and she will.
A large amount of her music and other writings have survived to this day thanks to the Wiesbaden Codex (aka Riesencodex) .
I don't believe I have heard any of her music. Has much of her survived to this day? Any suggestions on music of hers to start with?
An interesting biography.
Thank you St Hildegard for your work and intercede for us in Christ name amen .
Transformati o n a l and centering.
I just saw Sequentia do a Hilgegard concert at the cathedral in Philadelphia . Very nice.
AMAZINGLY BEAUTIFUL...
..... <3.....
Exquisite music. I was transported to an unimaginably peaceful, spiritual place.
Thank you for giving me the gift of Hildegard and for paying attention to her importance even in today's culture.

I have known of her music and studies on medicine for a long time. I'm so pleased that Pandora has made it so easy to hear her wonderful music that is truly transcendent . She was so remarkable a woman, glad to see there is a film coming out on her life, and to hear that she has finally been sainted. I'll follow-up on that as research. Much appreciate these posts. Thank you, and a nice end to a lovely Thanksgiving weekend.
Soothing to the soul, brings peace and harmony when as a teacher -- I live in chaos.
Just saw her bio on netflix. Thats how i learned about her. Funny how God works in people's life.

Hildegarde's was just recently canonized she is now Saint Hildegard

Even though i'm not a Catholic, I find Gregorian Chant helps me focus my mind when I'm reading scripture or praying .And it's wonderfully relaxing just to listen to.
You play something like this on a low volume on your laptop as youre trying to fall asleep, like a hotel room or a friend's place..you end up sleeping like a baby :) this music just taps into that primitive part of our brains..our inner child that wants to hear a lullaby. Hymns may be about the church and God, but at their core theyre lullabies for the soul.
Don't read this because it actually works. You will be kissed on the nearest Friday by the love of your life. However if you don't post this you will die in 2 days. Now you've started reading so don't stop. This is so scary put this on atleast 5 songs in 143 minutes when done press f6 and your lover's name will come on the big letters. This is so scary because it actually works.
ibuaye, two of the Church Fathers were St. Ignatius of Antioch and St. Justin Martyr
To Stephen Snyder, with all due respect, which many Fathers of the Church? Could you give me names? Be specific about your answer? Thank you!

She's not the first composer whose biography is known. There are many other who composed sacred music before her, including many of the Fathers of the Church, long, long before her.
It's Ordo Virtutum (not Virtutem)
Her music is beautifully unbelievable y beautiful
Will this help me keep my focus when reading
Good background music for a taxed mind.
I have loved and appreciated her music for years and play it on my CD player to sleep to nearly every night... Soothing, peaceful and calms my soul
rickj5678
simple. beautiful.

The immaculate companion for Lectio Divina. Thanks be to God for leading me here.

Another example that Medieval times were as much enlightened as Renaissance. . . if not more.
bucko62
Beautiful, ethereal, heavenly!
apgarrepy91
I love Hildegard!
erickson.jd
@Paulina, if that's your conclusion, I think you failed your rhetoric and deductive reasoning classes...
wow very sweet beautiful sounds
Thank the Lord for Pandora.Mode r n radio doesn't play anything good!
Good point, Paulina.
Actually, YOU should take a Rhetoric or Deductive Reasoning class!

Migraines and spiritual visions are not necessarily mutually-exc l u s i v e concepts.

For all we know, migraines may be the physical manifestatio n , or side-effect, of a spiritual phenomena (or vice versa).
God made us to sing, so he speaks through music. There are so many levels of creation and the creative process. She felt creation and the Lord of Creation. Beautiful words and music still exist at the hand of God... listen to the Song of Seikilos (the world's first complete song on record). This was a song made by a man to mourn his wife. On the tombstone, he wrote that his song was timeless, and forever in stone, a contrast to the song lyrics, which were about the shortness of life.
as a kid I had a tape of the canticles of ecstasy. And after hundreds of faithful hours listening to the haunting songs, it died. And of course I didn't know the name. Then with the advent of google, looked up...medieva l singing nuns and found her! Love the music.

Her music moves me - and many others - to tears. So haunting, so beautiful.
remarkable,e n c h a n t i n g . . . w o w i just don't have words coming to my mind!
Her haunting instrumental compositions are just a hint at the mind of one of the most remarkable musical and intellectual figures in medieval history. Worth exploring!
Wow -- now I know what Heaven sounds like.
in every song...I feel her compassion. She is an eternal master. Bowing.
Transcendent .
