Ordo Virtutum

Order of the Virtues – an allegorical morality play by Hildegard of Bingen

Hildegard of Bingen composed 77 songs for different feasts of the liturgical year. The plot of the morality play Ordo virtutum is the struggle between virtues and devil for one repentant soul. The play is a kind of a culmination of Hildegard’s theological thougts. We perform the piece with a touch of dramatization and scene. The monophonic chant inspired us for an improvised instrumenatal accompaniment.
