HILDGARD OF BINGEN IN LYMPSTONE CHURCH Friday 22nd March at 7pm
Lympstone Entertainments has a thrilling concert in the church:
The heavenly songs of the 12th century nun, HILDEGARD OF BINGEN, have captured the public imagination over the past two decades, since the CD of her music recorded by Emma Kirkby and Gothic Voices. Music written 900 years ago entrances us even today.
On Friday 22nd March, at 7pm, in Lympstone Parish Church, the mediaeval ensemble The Telling will perform some of her mesmerising music by candlelight, accompanied by a mediaeval harp, while actress Teresa Banham plays Hildegard herself, and reflects on her extraordinary life. She described herself as “A feather on the breath of God”, but she was also involved in politics, diplomacy, philosophy and medicine. She is considered to be the founder of scientific natural history in Germany.
This short concert/drama, Vision: The Imagined Testimony of Hildegard, has been written by Clare Norburn, who wrote the part of Beethoven when the Dante Quartet performed all his string quartets in Lympstone two years ago. Teresa Banham, who brings Hildegard to life, has an acting career which ranges from Dr Who on television to the RSC in the theatre.

Vision is part of The Telling’s Empowered Women Trilogy and is funded by Arts Council England, The Golsoncott Foundation and The Ambache Charitable Trust. More information on our website for all Lympstone Entertainments events! https://lympstone-entertainments.net
