Project Hildegard #20

No fewer than 13 of Hildegard von Bingen’s 77 liturgical chants are in honour of Saint Ursula and companions. With Saint Ursula’s feast day coming up on October 21st, I have decided to create a mini-series of chants that will feature the eight antiphons that Hildegard wrote for singing at Lauds as part of the Office for the Feast of Saint Ursula, together with my revisited versions.

Here is the first antiphon as written by Hildegard:

Antiphon 1. studium divinitatis

My plan is to first record the 8 chants and then for the revisited versions to form a coherent song cycle. Watch this space to see how it turns out!

divine zeal in highest praise gave the kiss of peace to the virgin Ursula, with her crowd, among all the people.
