Notes & Reviews:

Canonized by Pope Benedict in May 2012, St. Hildegard von Bingen, abbess, visionary, healer, singer, poet and composer, left two precious manuscripts filled with spiritual songs. With this anthology, Music for Paradise, the world-renowned ensemble Sequentia presents the entire spectrum of Hildegard's music - songs of surprising depth and virtuosity, at times meditative, at times shocking, yet always energized by the unique musical genius and voice of this visionary artist more than 800 years after her death. Sequentia is one of the world's most respected and innovative ensembles for medieval music. It is an international group of singers and instrumentalists, under the direction of legendary performer Benjamin Bagby, dedicated to the performance and recording of Western European music from the period before 1300. Based on meticulous research and intensive rehearsal, Sequentia's virtuosic performances are compelling, surprising in their immediacy and strike the listener with a timeless emotional connection to our own past musical cultures.
