Hildegard: Ordo Virtutum (Ritual of the Virtues)
San Francisco Renaissance Voices
 
Todd Jolly, Music Director; Deepak Ram, bansuri; Diana Rowan, Celtic harp
 
Hildegard von Bingen (1098–1179), a visionary, mystic nun was nothing less than extraordinary; her many accomplishments include physician, artist, author, herbalist, advisor to popes and kings, and composer of this, what is considered by many to be the first opera. San Francisco Renaissance Voices brings this piece of rarely performed music from the Middle Ages to life in this fusion concert incorporating the traditional instrumental music and dance of India.
