Event Description

Part of Stroud Green Festival 2019

An allegorical music-drama by medieval Abbess Hildegard of Bingen about the struggle between the Virtues and the Devil for a human soul, the Anima; arguably the earliest “opera” by a woman.

"Stunning simplicity and pure serenity reach out to touch the heart of the listener...a cappella singing of excellent clarity and ensemble…soaring virtuosity" Bournemouth Evening Echo.
"a wonderful performance...the vocal artistry at a very high level... If I were forced to limit my library to only one recording of music by Hildegard von Bingen, this would be it." Continuo Magazine, USA

Vox Animae:
Ansy Boothroyd as The Soul
Evelyn Tubb as Humility, Queen of the Virtues
Jennie Cassidy, Yvonne Eddy, Ruth Gomme, Clare Norburn & Lindsay Richardson singers 
Michael Fields harp & music director 
Nigel Richards actor as The Devil

£15 (£10 concs)
