Hildegard of Bingen and the Living LightDVD - 2012
In a tour-de-force performance, international mezzo soprano Linn Maxwell transports us back to medieval Europe to meet German writer, composer, healer and prophet Hildegard of Bingen in this captivating one-woman show. Throughout her life of devotion, Hildegard experienced visions from God that called her to express herself through her many talents and assume a role of leadership inside the church - one that challenged the male-dominated establishment and moved some to silence her. Accompanying herself on authentic medieval instruments, Linn performs Hildegard's original songs and, through the mystic's actual writings, embodies the life and passion of an extraordinary woman who lived centuries ahead of her time. Written and performed by Linn Maxwell Based on the stage performance directed by Erv Raible. DVD also contains numerous EXTRA material, including interviews with noted Hildegard scholars and experts, and a two-part informal seminar for group discussions.
