Editorial Reviews

Ordo Virtutum (70 mins) is the oldest surviving European music-drama, and the greatest musical work by the visionary mystic, Hildegard of Bingen (1098-1179). Hildegard left a treasury of writings and music expressing the passionate intensity of her mystical experiences. Her profound knowledge seemed to come directly from a source of wisdom deeper than learning and tradition, finding its expression through the symbolism of medieval Christendom. She tells us that the spirit and the world are not separate but intertwined, and that spirituality and worldliness do not have to be separate either. Although she lived almost her entire life as a cloistered nun, she was deeply involved with the world on many levels - observing, writing, preaching and organising a community. Through her many writings, she tells us that help is always at hand, both from the world we know with our senses, and from the world we discover through our hearts and intuition.

The Soul Ansy Boothroyd, The Devil John Hancorn, The Virtues Vox Animae, led by Evelyn Tubb, Chorus of Patriarchs, Prophets and Souls Mayfield Chamber Opera Chorus, Harp Michael Fields, Recorder Piers Adams, Percussion Steven Devine, Directors Michael Fields and Evelyn Tubb

I've seen other presentations of the Ordo that put me to sleep. This performance was easy to follow and well done. I enjoyed the video of a small part of the life of Hildegard. The interviews with Hildegard experts was the best of all. Try not to pay too much attention to Matthew Fox who seems to regard Hildegard as a '70's syle hippie/Buddhist.

Got this strictly for Ordo Virtutum.
The rest was ok, once!

Any reenactment of an early music morality play/ music -drama is going to be an "educated guess" and this is fantastic.
