for someone interested in early music this is a good place to start- von bingen's visions speak to us across nine centuries.
liner notes are minimal, as is the case with most NAXOS titles, but lyrics in latin and english are provided, which is nice.
oxford camerata is amazing- many of the solo sections for female voice soar with great beauty. the choice of recording location (chapel of hertford college, oxford) adds a tiny bit of acoustic abience without being distracting.
how can you go wrong at the price?

It was a distressing surprise to find that my Oxford Companion to Music does not even contain an entry for Hildegard of Bingen. I had half-heard some broadcast discussion of her a few years back, but anything I know about her really comes from the liner notes with this disc, fortunately among the better specimens of their kind that I have encountered recently.
Hildegard was abbess of a distinctly upmarket Benedictine convent located near Bingen-am-Rhein in the early 12th century. She was clearly a formidable woman, being a seer and visionary consulted by Popes and potentates, a writer on scientific matters and a poet and composer as well. This disc contains 55 minutes or so of selections from her `Symphony of the Harmony of Divine Revelations', a collection of poems in her own highly individual and vigorous version of the Latin of the time, set to her own music. The music has a distant resemblance to the Gregorian chant, believed to have originated around the 8th century. It is all monody, though some of the numbers are accompanied by a sustained background note, originating exactly where and how I could not be sure. The music contains some flourishes that would have been out of place in the plainsong but which seem natural enough in the context of her spiritual-carnal imagery. This can be downright weird here and there. My recollection is still boggling at
Nunc sit laus Deo
In forma pulchre tonsure
Viriliter operante
`Now let there be praise to God in the form of a beautiful tonsure working in manly mode'.

The music in this CD is simply outstanding! I was very surpised when I bought this CD and discovered that it surpasses many other more "colourful" recordings of Hildegard's music (regardless of the price.)

For those who are not interested in aesthetic, artistic or musical merit but who are simply looking for "relaxing" music for contemplation, meditation etc, I am very pleased to say that this is probably the most relaxing and peaceful music I've ever heard (and I've tried many.) Its healing effect on my mind and nervous system is almost instant and that in a very balanced and harmonious way.

Highly higly highly recommended.

08-15-2014 I remember a old joke that says, "everyone wants to go to Heaven, but nobody wants to die." How true, but now, with a CD like this one, you CAN make a visit and live to tell about it. L.O.L. Really?? No, not really, but, by golly, it does seem so. Listening to the exquisite choral group the Oxford Camerata, under Jeremy Summerly, founded in 1984, is truly a Heavenly" experience and this Naxos CD scores a hit right from the very first utterance. I was swept away, as I own several of their recordings,, mostly of specific compositions but this is a first for an album of mixed and assorted chant.
Summerly trained at Lichfield Cathedral where he was a singer in the choir, then on to Oxford conducting the college choir and chamber orchestra. Graduating with first class honors, a title granted for high academic achievement, I think is not unlike our "cum Laude" embellishments, and, in the case of Summerly, he likely graduatued "Summa cum Laude". At any rate, he was a brilliant vocal scholar in a sea of terribly well educated British colleagues, known the world over for uncompromising quality and presentation. Rest assured, buying a recording led by this young 43 year old musician and scholar.
The oxford Camerata consists of 6 each men and women's voices, including Summerly as the 6ht male. the contents of this CD are envy slit between male/female and give us just under 59 minutes of Heavenly music. Gregorian Chant, which is what we hear on this recording, traverses the scale from specific, syllabic material to melismatic long and highly melodious vocal lines of a truly contemplative nature.

Format: Audio CD
I wanted to try Hildegard's music after all the hype I had read about it, and the original release of this CD seemed a perfect place to start without spending too much on something I might find I don't like. But I was hooked from the start. There are no distracting instruments and the use of male voices for some pieces and female for others offers a bit of variety. Summerly concentrates on the sound of the music rather than the meaning of the words and I think this works perfectly. Hildegard more than any other composer of chant knew how to use sound to focus the minds of her nuns where she felt it should be: on the power and glory of God and the ecstasy they should feel in serving Him. However, if you want a copy with the lyrics and translations you definitely need to find the original release. I have posted a scan of the cover from my own copy to help you find it.
