Project Hildegard #20 (2)

Today is the feast of Saint Ursula. In her honour, I proudly post my first revisited chant in the song cycle that will feature all eight of the antiphons written by Hildegard for Saint Ursula’s feast day, for singing at the office of lauds.

St Ursula at lauds: no 1. the kiss of peace to the virgin Ursula

Project Hildegard #2 (rerecorded)

The fifth antiphon in the series: Office for the feast of Saint Ursula, 8 antiphons in matutinis laudibus (for lauds). I recorded and revisited this chant back in March – very early on in the project. I rerecord it now as part of this mini-series.

Antiphon 5. aer enim volat

because air is in flight and fulfils its duty in all creatures and the firmament sustains it and the air feeds on that strength
