-THE PENGUIN GUIDE TO RECORDED CLASSICAL MUSIC 2009
Finally, a definitive "Hildegard" CD by the world's foremost exponent of the music and spirit of this 12th Century, mystic visionary!
More than 800 years after her death, musician, mystic, author, naturalist and abbess Hildegard von Bingen (1098-1179) has at last found universal recognition as one of history's most brilliant visionaries. On Unfurling Love's Creation, soprano Norma Gentile offers the definitive "Hildegard" performance -- a powerful, yet serene realization of pure spiritual devotion, exquisitely expressed through the human voice. Norma Gentile, soprano, holds bachelor's and master's degrees in Voice Performance from the University of Michigan. She resides in Ann Arbor where she teaches voice, coaches small ensembles, and teaches a form of auric healing. Her study of esoteric healing influences her singing and teaching styles. Her concerts are regularly recorded by National Public Radio stations wherever she performs. She enjoys introducing people to the music and spirit behind Hildegard's chants via concerts, workshops and is recognized one of the world's foremost interpretors of Hildegard's music.
