Sacred Choral Mix by Darby Milbrath

Sacred Choral music of the Medieval and Renaissance periods were written as devotional hymns for those seeking solace and inspiration in a violent, troubled world. Saint Hildegard von Bingen who was an abbess, mystic and composer, spent most of her 80 years shut away in isolation, in an obscure hilltop monastery in the Rhineland.
