Hildegard von Bingen

Years ago, I discovered the music of Hildegard von Bingen, a pioneering woman in the Christian tradition, who’s music is so trancental and beautiful. I’ve been spending the morning listening and really taking in this incredible music. There is so much information and history about her online. I invite you to take a look. Here is one article, of many I found this morning, which is a very readable introduction. Wishing everyone peace today. I’ve been reading about the potential violence today at the Capitol. I know not many people read this blog, but if you do happen to come across it, please remember the beauty of these sounds, as they aspire to reveal the deepest humanity, no matter what your path or philosophies may be.
