Coming Up

This is a list of recordings still to be processed.  It excludes only a couple of very recent gigs.  It will take a while to work through them all.  But if there is anything that particularly takes your fancy, leave a comment and I'll see if I can move it up the queue.

Hildegard of Bingen
The Symphony of the Harmony of Celestial Revelations

Sinfonye with the Oxford Girls' Choir
director Stevie Wishart
narrator Jane Lapotaire

from whence they came (unde quocumque)
milk and honey beneath her tongue (favus distillans)
the firstwoman (deus enim in prima muliere)
o energy of wisdom (o virtus sapiente)
o fiery spirit (o ignees spiritus)
living-light angels (o gloriosissimi lux vivens angeli)
but the devil mocked (sed diabolus)
the devils suggestion (o tu illustrata)
o radiant mother (o clarissima mater)
o orzchis eclesia
ursula's virgins (et ideo puelle)
place of the ancient heart (o vos angeli)
charity abounds (caritas habundat)
song to ecclesia (nunc gaudeant)
encore: Averus
