"The Origin of Fire". 12th cent. hymns and sequences

Anonymous 4
    • Apple Music

    Returning to the music of Hildegard of Bingen, the 12th-century German abbess and mystic, Anonymous 4 explores the theme of the Pentecostal power of the "Fiery Spirit". Hildegard's intensely emotional chants and visions (including the monumental hymn O ignee spiritus and some of her finest antiphons) are presented here framed by hymns and sequences that she and her convent sisters would have heard and sung every day.

    'This is the finest Hildegard recording ever made.' - Fanfare
