Hildegard of Bingen

1098 - September 17, 1179
born in Bemersheim, Germany, composed during the Medieval period
Hildegard of Bingen (1098-1179), the first composer whose biography is known, was one of the most remarkable and forceful individuals in Medieval Europe. Placed in a convent as a child, she took vows and eventually became an abbess, founding two convents of her own. A visionary mystic, she was also accomplished as a poet, painter, naturalist, theologian, and preacher, and she served as an advisor to political and religious leaders. Her music, which is notable for its distinctive departures from the conventions of plainchant, includes over 70 hymns, antiphons, and sequences, and the first surviving liturgical drama Ordo Virtutem. ~ Stephen Eddins, Rovi

I listen to all the ancient sacred choral music that comes up on Hildegarde's station. Whatever sets her apart delights my soul. I am particularly taken by her Sequences.. Whether one consciously attends to the music, or has it playing in the background, it opens and bathes the soul . . .

A large amount of her music and other writings have survived to this day thanks to the Wiesbaden Codex (aka Riesencodex) .

I don't believe I have heard any of her music. Has much of her survived to this day? Any suggestions on music of hers to start with?

I have known of her music and studies on medicine for a long time. I'm so pleased that Pandora has made it so easy to hear her wonderful music that is truly transcendent . She was so remarkable a woman, glad to see there is a film coming out on her life, and to hear that she has finally been sainted. I'll follow-up on that as research. Much appreciate these posts. Thank you, and a nice end to a lovely Thanksgiving weekend.

Even though i'm not a Catholic, I find Gregorian Chant helps me focus my mind when I'm reading scripture or praying .And it's wonderfully relaxing just to listen to.

You play something like this on a low volume on your laptop as youre trying to fall asleep, like a hotel room or a friend's place..you end up sleeping like a baby :) this music just taps into that primitive part of our brains..our inner child that wants to hear a lullaby. Hymns may be about the church and God, but at their core theyre lullabies for the soul.

ibuaye, two of the Church Fathers were St. Ignatius of Antioch and St. Justin Martyr

To Stephen Snyder, with all due respect, which many Fathers of the Church? Could you give me names? Be specific about your answer? Thank you!

She's not the first composer whose biography is known. There are many other who composed sacred music before her, including many of the Fathers of the Church, long, long before her.
