Synopsis

Amazon.com
This might just be the Hildegard CD you're having if you're having only one. Unlike CDs by the better-known Sequentia and Gothic Voices--all superb and highly recommended--here we get Hildegard sung by one voice, that of the lovely Rosa Lamoreaux, whose natural, warm, unaffected, but dramatically involved presentation keeps the listener riveted. She is supported by Tina Chancey and Scott Reiss (known collectively as Hesperus), who entwine the vocal lines with music for recorders, hammered dulcimer, vielle, viola da gamba, and other instruments--as well as performing three solos. Recorded in a soft-focus acoustic, this disc surrounds you with delicacy, devotion, and elegance--much the way Hildegard might have wanted it. Highly recommended to all lovers of beautiful music. --Robert Levine
 

CD Reviews

A wonderful sonic/spiritual experience
Erik Lindquist | East Lansing, Michigan | 11/20/1998
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Soprano Rosa Lamoreaux has the voice of an angel and takes the listener to another plain in this magical recording. Hildegards music is universal and combines the wonderful detail of medieval precision with the soothing elements of chant.This recording should be bought by anyone who enjoys early music or chant or the lyrical tones of a beautiful voice."
A wonderful ethereal listening experience.

"Rosa Lamoreaux has the voice of an angel and is perfectly suited to this genre. Hildegard's work continues to speak to our time with her lyric lines and wonderful tone qualities. Everyone who enjoys chant or ancient music should own this cd."

"I have it on my computer at work. People come it and ask me 1) where's the music coming from and 2) what is that? It's gorgeous!"
