I am writing this the day after Barbara Thornton's premature death (11/8/98). There is no question that this project will be a major legacy for some time to come, and it was Thornton as much as anyone who established Hildegard in the popular consciousness. It is surely unfortunate that she left the world shortly before the conclusion of her great artistic triumph, a recording of the complete works of Hildegard, but perhaps that will only serve to charge the project with a deeper meaning in the future.

The Sony reissue (2011) has the alternate title above, and comes with no texts.
