In this one-woman show, international mezzo soprano Linn Maxwell embodies the extraordinary life of 12th century German prophetess, healer, and composer, Hildegard of Bingen. Way ahead of her time and in a male-dominated world, Hildegard challenged the established authority of the Church, both philosophically and musically. Accompanying herself on authentic medieval instruments including psaltery, organistrum and harp, Linn performs seven of Hildegard’s original songs, and through the mystic’s actual letters and writings transports us to the turbulent times of the Crusades in Western Europe. Hildegard’s timeless universal message of spiritual truth, holistic healing and caring for the earth is more urgent today than ever.
