“I am fascinated and moved to discover the difference between the music of Kassia and Hildegard. Kassia’s music and message are to me more substantial and grounded, in the earth, while I strongly connect Hildegard’s music and texts with her visions. The songs are like the multicoloured brush strokes of an Impressionist painter.”
