Hildegard von Bingen

Atmospheres: sublime ambient music

'The heavens were opened and a blinding light of exceptional brilliance flowed through my entire brain. And so it kindled my whole heart and breast like a flame, not burning but warming.'

The 12th-century abbess Hildegard of Bingen was an undoubted visionary, expressing her mystical experiences in music, poetry and art of transcendent beauty. This new exploration of her genius will take you into a space of introspection, a place where the needs of the soul are addressed.
