Sybil of the Rhine
Told in Hildegard von Bingens own words, the imaginative Sybil of the Rhine program simultaneously explores the soundscape in which the celebrated Abbess lived, and the theology that she embraced. Dramatic readings from her Scivias with improvised instrumental accompaniment are interspersed with her own compositions and anonymous medieval dances as a means of interpreting her visions musically.

Ensemble Musica Humana specializes in imaginative and historically informed musical performances. Drawing from primary sources, they seek to creatively engage with history through music, and bring to life a myriad of ancient musical traditions.The ensemble takes its name from the Pythagorean concept of the Music of the Spheres as presented in the seminal work of Boethius, De Musica, which describes the three branches of music. Musica Mundana, the divine harmony created by the movements of the stars and planets; Musica Instrumentalis, the sounds made by instruments and singers; and Musica Humana, the music that resonates within the human body when it is in harmony with the music of the spheres. Ensemble Musica Humana and its core members have performed in major cities all around North America including New York City, Boston, Houston, Philadelphia, Montreal, as well as European cities such as Norfolk, England, and Lucerne, Switzerland. The ensemble has recorded four full albums, appeared at the Boston Early Music Festival, the SoHIP concert series, the Jane Austen Society of North America annual conference, the annual Carolan Festival (Worcester, VT), and their recordings have been featured on the BBC adaptation of Poldark.
