Information from CD
The Swedish noblewoman Birgitta Birgersdotter (1303-1373), a visionary and the founder of a monastic order, was canonized in 1391 and declared Patron Saint of Europe in 1999. This new CD with the Finnish female vocal ensemble Vox Silentii contains pieces from Cantus sororom (The song of the sisters). These songs are in the Gregorian chant tradition and lyrics and music are by St. Bridget herself. She taught her nuns to sing in a simple and natural manner. Vox Silentii has strictly followed St. Bridget's instructions how to sing these contemplative songs (from website).
