Hildegard of Bingen was a German writer, composer and philosopher. Born in the late 11th century she was widely regarded as a visionary in the arts world, writing a series of texts, plays and music which have been the subject of renewed interest in recent years. Having been referred to as saintly by numerous popes throughout the ages, Hildegard was officially canonised on the 7th October 2012. She is the first ever composer to be made a saint.
The album is a joint collaboration between old school friends, Guy Sigsworth and Stevie Wishart. Having studied medieval music together at a young age, they went on to go down very different musical paths. Stevie went on to become an academic in medieval music, specialising in Hildegard and the hurdy gurdy. Guy became a music producer working with renowned artists such as Bjork, Madonna and Britney Spears, as well as continuing to write his own original compositions.
The collaborative force behind this project therefore ensures that Hildegard isn t a straightforward medieval recording. As well as original pieces by Hildegard, the album also features new compositions by Stevie Wishart incorporating text written by Hildegard and pieces by Guy Sigsworth, who reworks Hildegard samples to create ambient remixes.
