HILDEGARD VON BINGEN [1098 – 1179] : O CLARISSIMA MATER

Κατά ένα ενδιαφέροντα τρόπο, ένας από τους θεμέλιους λίθους της δυτικής “λόγιας” μουσικής, κυριαρχούμενης από άνδρες, είναι το έργο μιας γυναίκας που κυριάρχησε πνευματικά τον 12ο αιώνα : της Γερμανίδας μοναχής, συγγραφέως, συνθέτιδας, φιλοσόφου, και μυστικίστριας / οραματίστριας Hildegard Von Bingen, τιμώμενης ως αγίας από την Καθολική και την Προτεσταντική Εκκλησία.
Ακούμε ένα ύμνο της στην Θεοτόκο.

Interestingly, one of the cornerstones of Western classical music, dominated by men, is the work of a
woman who dominated spiritually in the 12th century: the abbess, writer, composer, philosopher, and German mystic / visionary Hildegard Von Bingen, honored as a saint by both the Catholic and the Protestant Church.
We hear a hymn by her to the Virgin Mary.

    Excellent piece. Hildegard of Bingen was one of the few women of 12th century to successful work with in male dominated church. Her life is fascinating.

      Yes, she was a great exception then and also for a long time after …Seven centuries had to pass for the next women classical composers, Fanny Mendelssohn & Clara Schumann!
