The radiant music of Abbess Hildegard of Bingen, twelfth-century poet-composer, prophet and mystic, herbalist and healer, came to her in visions and was no doubt intended to be sung by the nuns of her convent. Her rhapsodic chants inspired by the legend of St. Ursula and the Eleven Thousand Virgins are full of imagery, weaving a hypnotic web of sound. Anonymous 4, who sings with "an ethreal clarity that is absolutely captivating", are the ideal interpreters of this music. "Anonymous 4 has produced one of the finest Hildegard programs ever made. The voices are simply perfect for music" says Fanfare.
