Singing Hildegard von Bingen workshop
Intervening Marcel Pérès
Holy, visionary, healer, composer, everything seems to have been said about Hildegard von Bingen, yet much remains to be discovered on this woman, his writings and his music. In addition, on October 7, 2012 it was proclaimed doctor of the Church, which deeply changes the approach that one might have of his work. Previously she appeared like a weird character, even more than his music and his writings on medicine had strong interest in the environments listed in the 'New Age' movement. Today the situation is quite different, because his life, his knowledge and... his music reveals a basic education in the knowledge of what the Church can transmit.
Thus Hildegard, 35th doctor of the Church, the 4th woman to be elevated to this distinction, after Catherine of Siena, Teresa of Avila and Thérèse de Lisieux, is also the first composer whose music is officially recognised as a major education.
Herein lies the marvels of this story. It took until nine centuries that Hildegard reveals the full power of his teaching. This 12th century woman has something very important to the world today.
This session is open to all those who want to discover or deepen the music of Hildegard, particularly in its liturgical dimension. These songs resonate in their fullness when they are sung by women. This session is aimed specifically at women, it may be followed by men who want to know this directory, however, they should not participate in the end of course concert.
