This is the second of three discs which form a project by Stevie Wishart to record all of the music of the 12th century polymath nun Hildegard von Bingen. Ms Wishart (who sadly has not chosen to provide her hurdy-gurdy accompaniment to any of the tracks as on the first disc) has gathered about herself a talented group of singers, soloists and choir, including members of the Oxford Girls Choir.
These pieces and their delivery conjure up and lift us right into the heart of the vita contemplativa - alone before the vast universe but also bring us into peace with it.
The booklet provides some programme and performance notes, plus full Latin sung texts and translations.
