Be sure to check out Carl’s post
on the two newest Doctors of the Church, St. John of Avila and St. Hildegard of Bingen – he’s got links to the Holy Father’s homily from yesterday as well as to articles on the lives of these two great saints.
Carl also includes a link to Christopher S. Morrissey’s fantastic CWR article from over the summer, “A Beginner’s Guide to the Music of St. Hildegard of Bingen,” which features a playlist of 12 tracks for those interested in a taste of Hildegard’s beautiful, haunting music. Morrissey also has the Latin texts of the compositions, as well as his own translations. Below are a few sample tracks from Morrissey’s “beginner’s playlist”:
“O quam mirabilis”
“O virtus Sapientiae”
“O viridissima virga”
"Qui sunt hi, qui ut nubes?"
“O frondens virga”
