Susan Lincoln on singing the music of Hildegard of Bingen:
“Of all the different kinds and styles of music I have sung in my life, nothing has ever moved me like Hildegard’s inspired compositions. The melodies flow up and down the scale, as if following the flight of birds. The language of Hildegard’s music further contributes to the mystery, reflecting her deep appreciation for the beauty of the natural world. Although some scholars fault Hildegard’s unschooled use of grammar, heart-connected students of her texts are awed by the poetic sensuousness and reverence she conveys.
Hildegard is particularly relevant for women today. Because she claimed her voice in loving service to the world, singing her music empowers us to do the same.”
