Airs, Tuesday, March 27, 2018. at 11 a.m. An hour-long program of music, exploring the life and continuing popular appeal of medieval Abbess, composer, and mystic Hildegard von Bingen. In the past 50 years, we've learned much more about the music of women composers in earlier ages. One of the most studied, discussed, and performed of these composers is the medieval Abbess and mystic Hildegard von Bingen. On this edition of Harmonia, we'll explore the continuing popularity of Hildegard, and some different approaches to her music. Hosted by Angela Mariani.
