Composer: Hildegard von Bingen

Catalog Number: 492-00127

The sixteen chants for the Blessed Virgin Mary and her Son presented here include two musical settings whose texts are already found in Hildegard's Scivias. It appears that Hildegard set these texts to music for the Symphonia cycle, either at the time of composing the words, or later in a separate compositional process. Some of the Marian chants belong to the liturgical category of the responsory. Hildegard's responsories are her most lofty compositions, and are quite unparalleled in their melodic decoration by any other medieval composer of monophony.
