Washington, District of Columbia 20016
In the Gothic nave of Washington National Cathedral, Folger Consort presents a bouquet of soaring and ecstatic melodies by the great 12th-century visionary and composer, Hildegard von Bingen. Hildegard’s mystical hymns and sequences from her landmark collection, Symphony of the Harmony of Celestial Revelations, are presented alongside works by living female composers in new arrangements for female voices and medieval instruments. Selections from Susan Botti’s Bird Songs and Kate Soper’s Songs for Nobody, along with a new arrangement of Pulitzer Prize-winner Shulamit Ran’s Credo/Ani Ma’anim, are interspersed with music more than 800 years old in a program reflecting on nature, spirituality, and eternity.

With bowed and plucked strings, winds, percussion, and vocal ensemble Trio Eos.

On Friday, February 2, join us for a free pre-concert discussion with the performers and composer Susan Botti.
