Notes and Editorial Reviews

Sequentia was among the first vocal ensembles to revive Hildegard’s music in our time, working closely from the medieval manuscript sources and employing performance practices which would have been known to the abbess and her Benedictine sisters in the 12th century. Under the general artistic direction of the late Barbara Thornton (1950-1998) and with Sequentia's co-founder Benjamin Bagby, more than sixty of the world’s foremost vocalists and instrumentalists active in historical music performance joined the ensemble to perform and record Hildegard’s works on a regular basis between 1982 and 1999, and again under Bagby’s direction in 2012-2014. Thornton and Bagby worked closely with musicologists and philologists, including Leo Treitler, Read more Peter Dronke and Barbara Stühlmeyer. In addition to recording, the ensemble toured extensively, performing Hildegard's works to critical acclaim all over Europe, in North America, Australia and Japan.

The Sequentia recordings of Hildegard’s complete musical works are now contained on 9 CDs and include all of Hildegard’s 77 symphoniae as well as her music drama Ordo Virtutum – more than 9 hours of music. One of these releases, Canticles of Ecstasy, received numerous international awards (including an Edison Prize, a Disque d’Or, and a Grammy® nomination for best choral recording) and sold more than a million copies worldwide.
