The work of Hildegard of Bingen is so powerful – the music, the herbal knowledge and the spiritual confidence. Thanks to Linn Maxwell, an internationally known mezzo soprano who has written and is performing a one woman show, “Hildegard of Bingen”. This show is an exciting opportunity to hear Ms Maxwell sing Hildegard of Bingen compositions while accompanying herself on medieval instruments. She makes use of original letters written by Hildegard in crafting a narrative from one of the few women in history who was empowered with sacred authority, and left a legacy for those of us today who wonder what women were doing across history other than dying in childbirth.
