Hildegard of Bingen's Music

A related page, gives more details about Hildegard of Bingen's life and books.

On this page we will concentrate on her music. Along with several books and copious correspondence with the Who's Who of her time, Hildegard - who had no formal musical training - also wrote a musical play, described as the first musical drama in history (Ordo Virtutum) which contains some 82 musical parts.

In addition, Hildegard composed a song cycle "Symphonia Armonie Celestium Revelationum" consisting of more than 70 songs.

Fortunately for us, much of her music is readily available.
