Album Review
Don Farrell
Reviewed 2009-09-28 
Opera/musical theater by 12th Century visionary & abbess Hildegard von Bingen ( she would have been 910 years old on Sept 17th), in Latin with a modern soundscape twist . Rock/electronics tinged. The story is about the
struggle between a Soul, the Devil and a host of allegorical virtues. Each Act is composed by a different Hildegurl. This is one opera that I would like to see. It was performed in 1998 at Lincoln Center. Every track is unique and sounds great.
1: 2:54 prologue typical beautiful sounding female chorus
2: 13:58 ACT 1 typical beautiful sounding female chorus then @ 7 min brief kick out the jams then back and forth with atmospherics, drone and brief outbursts
3: 17:52 ACT 2 vocal & chorus with swirl/industrial foundry soundscapes
4: 15:07 ACT 3 chaos intro then vocal & chorus with swirl/industrial foundry soundscapes
5: 19:55 vocal & chorus with swirl/industrial foundry soundscapes & distorted voices collage intro., then vocal & chorus with bass rhythm then drone
6: 3:39 Processional typical beautiful sounding female chorus
