Project Hildegard

The COVID-19 pandemic and resultant confinement started me off on a project to record and revisit all 77 liturgical chants written by Hildegard Von Bingen.

As the project grows, I am keeping a track of all the chants that I have sung and revisited on this page, together with the date the first version of each was posted.

You can also listen to all my recordings on SoundCloud. (I have put the ‘pure’ chants together in one SoundCloud playlist, the revisited one are in another.)
