Sequentia’s Hildegard von Bingen Project: Initially in collaboration with the West German Radio Cologne (WDR Köln) Sequentia made a series of recordings of the complete works of Germany’s most important medieval composer, the abbess and visionary Hildegard von Bingen (1098-1179).

In another major recording, the men’s (8) and women’s (8) vocal ensembles of Sequentia turn to the many saints which Hildegard venerated, including patron saints of men’s monasteries, with works to be sung by the monks who had requested them. This is the first Hildegard recording in the series to be made without the co-production of the WDR Köln. This recording also features the sound of 3 medieval fiddles (Elizabeth Gaver, Robert Mealy and Rachel Evans).
