  • Hildegard von BINGEN - Ave generosa


    Za panowania Henryka IV w Świętym Cesarstwie Rzymskim żyła w Galii Bliższej dziewica słynąca ze swego szlachetnego urodzenia i świętości. Na imię jej było Hildegarda. Jej rodziciele, Hildebert i Mechthylda, choć ludzie możni i ze sprawami światowymi obeznani, mieli na względzie dary należne Stwórcy, oddali, przeto córkę w służbę Bogu. Jeszcze w dziecięctwie od spraw ziemskich się odsunęła, odgrodzona od nich przedziwną czystością.

    Composer: Hildegard Von Bingen

    The beginning of the cult for the music of Hildegard von Bingen started with a CD of the British label Hyperion in the 80-ties and ever since it enjoys a huge popularity: the Mystic from the Middle Ages wrote heavenly music, which till today holds its spell over every audience, whether laymen or connoisseur. The magic is unexplainable, one has to experience the power and beauty in solitude.

    The religious Hildegard von Bingen was known as 'The Sybil of the Rhine' on account of her visions, translated into music with prophetic charisma. This disc presents two sides of Hildegard, an instrument and a mirror, reflecting her divine revelations, through the sound of her words both spoken and sung.
    The performances are from a specialised early-music ensemble, based in Florence, who have undertaken study of the original manuscripts and (perhaps more unusually) performed the music in public before making this testament to the art of one of music's most singular women, who is still perhaps more famed for her life than her music.

    Hildegard von Bingen - O Viridissima virga - ) Greenest branch

    ( English text ) O Greenest branch
    O branch of freshest green,
    O hail Within the windy gusts of saints
    upon a quest you swayed and sprouted forth.

    When it was time, you blossomed in your boughs
    you heard for in you seeped the sunlight’s warmth
    like balsam’s sweet perfume.
    For in you bloomed
    so beautiful a flow’r, whose fragrance wakened
    all the spices from their dried-out stupor

    They all appeared in full viridity

    Then rained the heavens dew upon the grass
    and all the earth was cheered,
    for from her womb she brought forth fruit
    and for the birds up in the sky
    have nests in her

    Then was prepared that food for humankind
    the greatest joy of feasts
    O Virgin sweet, in you can ne’er fail any joy

    . All this Eve chose to scorn

    The Italian Marco Ambrosini is such a curious person. He plays the ‘nyckelharpa’, a Swedish instrument with keys and strings which is mostly used in folk music. This versatile performer, with his feathery sound and picturesque improvisations, is the perfect musical dancing partner to the enchanting star soprano Dorothee Mields.

  • Ordo Virtutum 1/3 - Hildegard von Bingen


    Manuscript and score of Hildegard von Bingen's Ordo Virtutum (Order of the Virtues), composed around 1150.

    Ordo Virtutum is an allegorical morality play, or liturgical drama composed during the construction and relocation of her Abbey at Rupertsberg. It is the earliest morality play by more than a century, and the only Medieval musical drama to survive with an attribution for both the text and the music. A short version of Ordo Virtutum without music appears at the end of Scivias, Hildegard's most famous account of her visions, and is also included in some manuscripts of the Symphonia armoniae celestium revelationum (Symphony of the Harmony of Celestial Revelations). But the music score is found on the Riesencodex or Wiesbaden Codex, a vast codex containing the abbess' works.
    The subject of the play is not typical for a liturgical drama. It shows no biblical events, no depiction of a saint's life, and no miracles. Instead, Ordo Virtutum is about the struggle for a human soul, or Anima, between the seventeen Virtues and the Devil. The idea that Hildegard is trying to develop in Ordo Virtutum is the reconnection between the creator and creation. The work's story can be divided in a prologue and four more parts.

  • Hildegard von Bingen: O frondens virga, Antiphona


    Blessed Hildegard of Bingen (German: Hildegard von Bingen) (1098 -- 17 September 1179), also known as Saint Hildegard, and Sibyl of the Rhine, was a Christian mystic, German Benedictine abbess, visionary, and polymath. Elected a magistra by her fellow nuns in 1136, she founded the monasteries of Rupertsberg in 1150 and Eibingen in 1165. One of her works as a composer, the Ordo Virtutum, is an early example of liturgical drama.
    Attention in recent decades to women of the medieval church has led to a great deal of popular interest in Hildegard, particularly her music. Between 70 and 80 compositions have survived, which is one of the largest repertoires among medieval composers. Hildegard left behind over 100 letters, 72 songs, seventy poems, and 9 books.

    One of her better known works, Ordo Virtutum (Play of the Virtues), is a morality play. It is unsure when some of Hildegard's compositions were composed, though the Ordo Virtutum is thought to have been composed as early as 1151. The morality play consists of monophonic melodies for the Anima (human soul) and 16 Virtues.
    In addition to the Ordo Virtutum Hildegard composed many liturgical songs that were collected into a cycle called the Symphonia armoniae celestium revelationum. The songs from Symphonia are set to Hildegard's own text and range from antiphons, hymns, sequences, to responsories. Her music is described as monophonic; that is, consisting of exactly one melodic line. Hildegard's compositional style is characterized by soaring melodies, often well outside of the normal range of chant at the time. Additionally, scholars such as Margot Fassler and Marianna Richert Pfau describe Hildegard's music as highly melismatic, often with recurrent melodic units, and also note her close attention to the relationship between music and text, which was a rare occurrence in monastic chant of the twelfth century. Hildegard of Bingen's songs are left open for rhythmic interpreation because of the use of neumes without a staff. The reverence for the Virgin Mary reflected in music shows how deeply influenced and inspired Hildegard of Bingen and her community were by the Virgin Mary and the saints.
    The definition of 'greenness' is an earthly expression of the heavenly in an integrity that overcomes dualisms. This 'greenness' or power of life appears frequently in Hildegard's works.

    Hildegard's musical, literary, and scientific writings are housed primarily in two manuscripts: the Dendermonde manuscript and the Riesenkodex. The Dendermonde manuscript was copied under Hildegard's supervision at Rupertsberg, while the Riesencodex was copied in the century after Hildegard's death.

  • Hildegard Von Bingen - Columba aspexit


    Columba Aspexit is a sequence written by Hildegard of Bingen in the late 12th century. It is one of seven sequences from her collection of lyrical poetry entitled Symphonia armonie celestium revelationum. This piece is found in only one manuscript: HS 2; Hessische Landesbibliotek, Wiesbaden, “Riesenkodex” (1175).

    A Sequence is a dramatic poem that is sung between the Alleluia and the Gospel in the Mass. While most sequences have rhymed pairs of lines, Hildegard’s are more through-composed. Columba Aspexit was written about St. Maximinus, whose feast is celebrated on the 29th of May. The date which it written is between 1175 and the 1180s.

    Columba aspexit
    per cancellos fenestrae
    ubi ante faciem eius
    sudando sudavit balsamum
    de lucido Maximino.

    Calor solis exarsit
    et in tenebras resplenduit
    unde gemma surrexit
    in edificatione templi
    purissimi cor dis benivoli.

    Iste turris excelsa,
    de ligno Libani et cipresso facta,
    iacincto et sardio ornata est,
    urbs precellens artes
    aliorum artificum.

    Ipse velox cervus cucurrit
    ad fontem purissime aque
    fluentis de fortissimo lapide
    qui dulcia aromata irrigavit.

    O pigmentari
    qui estis in suavissima viriditate
    hortorum regis,
    ascendentes in altum
    quando sanctum sacrificium
    in arietibus perfecistis.

    Inter vos fulget hic artifex,
    paries templi,
    qui desideravit alas aquile
    osculando nutricem Sapientiam
    in gloriosa fecunditate Ecclesie.

    O Maximine,
    mons et vallis es,
    et in utroque alta edificatio appares,
    ubi capricornus cum elephante exivit,
    et Sapientia in deliciis fuit.

    Tu es fortis
    et suavis in cerimoniis
    et in choruscatiane altaris,
    ascendens ut fumus aromatum
    ad columpnam laudis.

    Ubi intercedis pro populo
    qui tendit ad speculum lucis,
    cui laus est in altis.

    English Translation
    The dove peered in
    through the lattices of the windows
    where, before its face,
    a balm exuded
    from incandescent Maximilian.

    The heat of the sun burned
    dazzling into the gloom:
    whence a jewel sprang forth
    in the building of the temple
    of the purest loving heart.

    He, the high tower,
    constructed of Lebanon wood and cypress,
    has been adorned with jacinth and diamonds,
    a city excelling the crafts
    of other builders.

    This swift hart sped
    to the fountain of clearest water
    flowing from the most powerful stone
    which courses with delightful spices.

    O Perfume-Makers,
    you who are in the sweetest greenness
    of the gardens of the King,
    ascending on high
    when you have completed the holy sacrifice
    with the rams.

    This builder shines among you,
    the wall of the temple,
    who longed for the wings of an eagle,
    kissing his nurse Wisdom
    in the glorious fecundity of the Church.

    O Maximilian,
    you are the mount and the valley
    and in both you seem a high building,
    where the goat went with the elephant
    and Wisdom was in rapture.

    You are strong
    and beautiful in rites
    and in the shining of the altar,
    mounting like the smoke of perfumes
    to the column of praise.

    Where you intercede for the people
    who stretch towards the mirror of light
    to whom there is praise on high.

    Traducción al Español (Letra en Español)
    Una paloma miraba
    a través de los barrotes de la ventana
    cuando ante su rostro
    destilando destiló el bálsamo
    del luminoso Maximino.
    El calor del sol brotó
    y resplandeció en las tinieblas,
    de allí se alzó una piedra preciosa
    en la construcción del templo
    del más puro corazón benevolente.
    Él, una elevada torre,
    hecha de madera de Líbano y ciprés,
    ha sido adornada de jacinto y rubí,
    ciudad que sobresale en las obras
    de otros artífices.
    Él mismo, veloz ciervo,
    corrió hacia una fuente de la más pura agua
    que fluía desde la piedra más sólida
    y que esparcía dulces aromas.
    que estáis en el más grato verdor
    de los jardines del rey,
    que ascendéis a lo alto
    cuando cumplisteis el santo sacrificio
    en los carneros.
    Entre vosotros brilla el artífice
    muros del templo,
    que anheló las alas del águila
    al besar la nutricia sabiduría
    en la gloriosa fecundidad de la Iglesia.
    eres monte y valle
    y en uno y otro lado apareces como un alto edificio
    donde se alzó el capricornio con el elefante
    y la Sabiduría estuvo en gran goce.
    Tú eres fuerte y suave
    en las ceremonias
    y en el resplandor del altar
    ascendiendo como humo de especias
    hacia la columna de alabanza.
    allí intercedes por los pueblos
    que tienden hacia el espejo de la luz,
    para que éste haya alabanza en lo alto.

  • INVOCATION: Hildegard von Bingen ~ Anonymous 4


    'Invocation' written by Emma Bergen.
    Featured painting: 'Thecla' by David Bergen.

    Traditionally the Hebrew term Shekinah שכינה means 'dwelling', as a way of describing the presence of the Divine. As the term is feminine, it also has come to be used to describe the feminine aspect of the divinity: the Divine Feminine.

    Emma Bergen writes: I came to learn about the Shekinah while I was writing about the Gnostic Sophia, and was inspired to write my 'Invocation' as a way, both of expressing what such a contact means to me personally, and to reach out in the spirit (and within myself) to what has been described as 'the feminine face of God'. Oppression has many faces, some serious, and others so subtle that they might remain unnoticed by others. I invite you to join me in this invocation, written for all women everywhere, in whatever circumstances they might find themselves.”

    As a child, I often saw or felt 'entities' from other worlds. Many children report supersensory experiences and one such child was Hildegard von Bingen.
    Hildegard of Bingen, (1098-1179) was born a tenth child to a German noble family. She was an influential and spiritual woman whose fierce devotion paved the way for future generations of women to succeed in fields from theology, to medicine, to music and art. At a very early age she claimed to experience supernatural visions of a powerful, transformative light, but she hid her prophetic abilities until much later in life. She was admitted into a convent at the age of eight, and was prepared for a life of hermetic devotion and meditation.

    Although Hildegard was not formally educated, her desire to record her visions and messages into book form was undeterred. She relied on secretaries to help transcribe her ideas onto paper and was a prolific writer on topics of philosophy, herbal medicine, the natural world, and a noted composer of hauntingly beautiful chants.
    Hildegard became a well-regarded authority and the Mother Superior of her convent. Around 1135, at age 42, she undertook a series of visionary symbolic paintings in unmistakable mandala-forms. While she did not make the illustrations herself, it is thought that she oversaw their production. These cosmic memories occur in myth and archetypes we readily recognize. The pictures were thought to be as strong or stronger than the words themselves. There is a gesltalt immediacy, what Hindu's refer to as darshan, meaning the simultaneous act of seeing and being seen by a deity.

    She created a drawing, or illumination, in her manuscript Scivias (Know the Ways), circa 1140--50, of her defining vision, in which the great span of the universe revealed itself to her in a trance as round and shadowy...pointed at the top, like an egg...its outermost layer of a bright fire.

    Hildegard's visions led her to channel cosmic laws into illuminations and illustrate invisible concepts such as ethers, air, and wind. She assigns meaning to these elements to represent such virtues as atonement, righteousness, and moderation.

    Central to her mandala paintings is the understanding of a 'cosmic equilibrium' and a reverence for all life. In her use of 'quartering of the circle' we recognize the four elements (fire, air, water and earth), an archetypal depiction also used by Native American sand painters for the four sacred directions. Her concept of Viriditas, the Greening, was a precursor to our ecology movement. She described this power as the agent of the God, a divine vitality, that was the animating life-force within all creation. This 'Greenness' was the very expression of Divine Power on Earth.

    Anonymous 4 is a female a cappella quartet, based in New York City. Their main performance genre is medieval music, although they have also premiered works by living composers such as John Tavener and Steve Reich. The group currently comprises Marsha Genensky, Susan Hellauer, Ruth Cunningham, and Jacqueline Horner (Jacqueline Horner-Kwiatek in more recent listings, following a marriage in 2008). Two membership changes have occurred during the group's history. The original lineup included Johanna Maria Rose rather than Jacqueline Horner. In 1998, Ruth Cunningham left and was replaced by Jacqueline Horner. In 2008, Ruth Cunningham returned to the group in place of Johanna Maria Rose.
