I just sent a private messae to Steven C. Bauman which I will repeat to the
list (I just used the reply function here which sent it direct to him). The
_Ordo Virtutum_ has been recorded. It was done by Sequentia (founded by
Benjamin Bagby, a graduate of Oberlin Conservatory of Music [a brief plug for
the local institution!]) The performance is on the Harmonia Mundi label and
is available on LP and CD-ROM. I can look up the numbers if anyone is
interested. The _Ordo Virtutum_ was also performed on German television by
Sequentia (augmented with other artists), but I have no idea if a videotape
is available. I will look forward to the publication of Pamela Sheingorn's
paper. Meanwhile, Barbara Newman's book, _Sister of Wisdom_ is an excellent
treatment of Hildegard's thought. Barbara also has a second volume out now,
with a translation of much of HIldegard's poetry.
The performance of the _Ordo Virtutum_ is marvelous (to these ears, at least).
P.S. "A Feather on the Breath of God" features (strange word for medieval
music) Emma Kirkby---a most interesting voice. That recording is available, I
believe, from Musical Heritage Society---and began life on the French Harmonia
Mundi label (again with the qualification, I believe).
