Format: Audio CD
This recording deserves a special place for what it has done to bring the works of Hildegarde before the public. Recorded in the late 80's, it led the way, as has Sequentia, in bringing such early music treasures as Hildegarde before the listening public.
The voices are clear and true. The performances are inspired. Of particular beauty are the interpretations of "O Quam Mirabilis Est" and "Spiritui Sancto Honor Sit" which successfully capture the ecstatic aspect of the mystic's music. If you have only one recording of this type of music, make it this recording!

Format: Audio CD
This was the first CD of Hildegard Von Bingen I purchased, and still my favorite. The sprituality and brilliance of this 12th century composer has (in my opinion) rarely been duplicated since. The complexity of the voicings in "O quam mirabilis est" and "Spiritui Sancto honor sit" among the the others, are wonderfully inspired and articulate. There are also four instumental songs on this cd. Which are an excellent study in modal shifts between the medieval fiddles,flutes and harp.The musical brilliance of Sequentia is evident in these arrangements. To the best of my knowledge these are the truest renditions of Hildegard's music extant.

Put on your headphones, or listen to this CD while taking a bath or meditating in a quiet place. This music will touch your soul. It seems to exist on a different level than other music. There is nothing quite like it to calm and uplift the spirit. If I could only have one Hildegard CD, this would be the one.

Format: Audio CD
I first heard this recording in the spring of 1990. It transported me. One of the best, especially "O quam mirabilis est." A glorious and authentic treatment of the music of Hildegard von Bingen. The liner notes provide an excellent background, too. Not to be missed. Barbara Thornton remains one of the foremost vocalists of early music, particularly that of the Sybil of the Rhine. In part because of her, and Sequentia, Hildegard echoes vision, hope, beauty and inspiration.

Loved this disc so much we wore it out. Used different instrumental pieces from this for the processional and recessional at our wedding and it must have worked out OK since we've been married over 20 years...

I have a 5 carousel cd player that I load with Gregorian Chants and play softly over my old college speakers. I live in the country with no neighbors so I'm not concerned that I'm troubling anyone else, ha. We have a three acres of gardens where we spend our days and evenings watching nature happen. Its a slow and introspective life full of art and accomplishment which the chant's pace fits into nicely. If you're new to Gregorian Chant then you might want to listen to some before purchasing.
