A live concert recording capturing the healing qualities of Hildegard's medieval chants.
All of Creation is a song of praise to God...
All of Creation is a symphony...
which is joy and jubilation."
~ Hildegard of Bingen
Norma Gentile captures powerfully the spirit and the depth of Hildegard's music and message in these beautiful and timeless CD's. She carries us to depths and heights that the soul yearns to explore and where Spirit and soul soar in unison. Hildegard is proud! -Matthew Fox,
author Illuminations of Hildegard of Bingen
Gentile s liquid singing and breathless delivery combine with her almost supernatural presence, concentration, and modal sensitivity. - Mark Longaker --Early Music America Magazine
A lone soprano voice, pure and serene, echoes unaccompanied. Flitting from note to note, almost like the song of a bird, the singer conveys a sense of other-worldly joy...The purity and flexibility of voice provide a fine instrument for Hildegard s music. - Ray D. Hatton --Christianity and the Arts Spring 1998
In Meditation Chants, Norma Gentile s exquisite soprano voice delivers each of these sacred monophonic Latin chants to the listener with a sense of healing and compassion. She and Hildegard describe the chants as translations of the subtle tones of the Universal Harmony or Cosmic Symphony. Gentile hears this symphony as well and honors Hildegard s strength and beauty through each selection. The chants provide a soothing background for meditation and simply bringing ourselves to a peaceful place that is green and lush and full of love. Enjoy the ecstasy of God by experiencing this symphony of joy and jubilation. -Peg Noonan --Creation Spirituality Network Magazine
