Project Hildegard #15

ave generosa

This lovely hymn is dedicated to the Virgin Mary, and therefore rather appropriate for assumption (August 15th). It is incomplete in the Dendermonde manuscript (which seems to be missing a page (or more?) between D155v and D156 – the manuscript jumps from the middle of ave generosa to part way through o virga ac diadema.)

So, although I usually follow the Dendermonde manuscript where possible, I have worked from the Riesencodex for this one. (The two manuscripts are very similar, but there are some differences.)
