The visionary music of Benedictine abbess, Hildegard of Bingen (1098-1179) came to popular attention nearly 900 years after her life with the album, A Feather on the Breath of God, sung by Emma Kirkby with Gothic Voices in 1985. We are delighted to welcome Emma to guide us in singing and discovering the beauty of Hildegard’s unique chant, while Caitlín explores Hildegard’s life and work. Singers of any level are welcome.
Emma Kirkby,DBE, is one of the world’s most renowned Early Music specialists, who has sung on over 100 recordings. http://www.emmakirkby.com
