Sacred Choral Mix by Darby Milbrath

Angel’s Trumpets, Oil paint on canvas, 18 × 16 × 1 1/2 in, 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. The songs she composed came to her in mystic visions, which she wrote for her nuns to sing at their devotions.  On today’s new moon, let’s take inspiration from the saints and set intentions to begin new projects. Listen to Darby Milbrath‘s mix below.
