Comments: Information from owned CD.
This is the first recording of a singer who seems highly talented. Although far more in the "New Age" style than HIP, this CD will please most listeners interested in Hildegard's musical works. Her voice is pure and sounds exactly as it should, never boring. I am not a fan of New Age music and I must confess that I am rarely able to listen to Hildegard's music more than 15 minutes in a row, but my first listening has been quite different.
