Words and music by Hildegard von Bingen are the inspiration for our final concert of the season. The astonishing music of the 12th-century visionary will be paired with recent treatments of her texts by composers Frank Ferko and Andrew Jonathan Welch, the latter of whom will join us as the pianist for the Virginia premiere of his Visions of Hildegard. We will also present contemporary settings of texts by poets and mystics from across the centuries that reflect the imagery and spirit of Hildegard’s visions. Among these are Arvo Pärt’s Magnificat and Scottish composer James Macmillan’s Invocation (to a text by John Paul II).
