Sing the Music of Hildegard von Bingen
A contemplative practice in the medieval oral tradition
Open to everyone who enjoys singing
- led by Devi Mathieu
St. Hildegard of Bingen (1098-1179) was a Benedictine Abbess, visionary, healer, naturalist, poet, playwright, and counselor. She was also a brilliant composer. Her songs are beautiful, inspiring, and encoded with mystical wisdom and insight. Experience Hildegard's music the way she shared it with the women and men who sang with her, in a restful, nourishing process of listening and singing together "through the ear to the heart."
No experience or musical training required. Drop-ins and newcomers are always welcome. Donations gratefully accepted.
Please enter through the front doors of the church. Please wear a mask when entering and leaving. Masks optional while we're singing.
Devi Mathieu has been singing and teaching the music of St. Hildegard for more than 20 years. A singer of western medieval and contemporary music in the US and Europe, she has a lifelong love of sacred music from around the world.
Windows@Incarnation, an art installation created by local artist Mario Uribe, rises in the Jerusalem Courtyard garden outside our church. Displaying arrays of eight windows of colorful “stained glass” acrylic discs that bear personal messages of gratitude, hope and love by members of Incarnation and the public, it symbolizes the meaning and power of collective effort, energy and prayer.
