Hildegard of Bingen


Rev. William Harmless, S.J. discusses the life and contribution of Hildegard of  Bingen.

We recorded this interview in September 2014, just a few weeks before Harmless’s unexpected death. Harmless was a frequent contributor to this program and will be missed. This is, sadly, the last of the Harmless podcasts recorded last fall.

This program references contemporary efforts to revive Hildegard’s music.  One of the best of these is the Sequentia Project.
