Hildegard of Bingen's music gets modern twist in new album
A series of compositions by Hildegard of Bingen, a Benedictine abbess who died in 1179, have been released as an album, the Telegraph reported.
The producer, Guy Sigsworth, has reworked them to create “ambient remixes.”
Sigsworth is a classically trained musician known for his work with Madonna, Britney Spears and Seal.
The album, Hildegard, is being released by Decca and industry experts predict it will become a chart success.
Sigsworth worked with Stevie Wishart, a composer who studied medieval music and has long been fascinated by Hildegard’s compositions.
