[ ALTO / CD ]

"Here, at last, is Hildegard sung by Benedictine nuns…living the same life, breathing the same air, and trying to capture the spirit of their great predecessor … they represent really lovely, rather unusual tones, beautifully sung, and with understanding" (© Gramophone)

"it seems to me absolutely to catch the spirit of her music: this Vespers disc, sung by the nuns of the Abbey of St Hildegard in Eibingen. (Gramophone Critics' choice 1998)
