O ignis spiritus
O ignis spiritus is a setting for Women's Chorus of an ancient sacred text by Hildegard Von Bingen. The origin of this piece was the idea to compose for Women's Chorus by setting the work of a female poet. Hildegard von Bingen was an obvious choice, being one of the first female composers as well a scholar, philosopher and Abbess with a supposed supernatural gift. O ignis spiritus captures the fire of Hildegard's words along with an echo of her music.
