A feather on the breath of God – Hildegard von Bingen

A feather 1

I was wondering who to feature for International Women’s Day on 8th March, and could have selected any of the modern women who have achieved much, but instead decided on a woman from the Medieval times.  Hildegard von Bingen was a remarkable woman, highly talented in many fields, and in an era when most women had very few rights or options on how to live their own lives.  What stands out most of all for me though, is her music.

This music always brings me to a place of peace……  may you share this feeling also. In these often turbulent times, we need to find a place within that will offer solace and allow us to renew our strength to face the challenges ahead.  Music can take us there…..
