Vermona '14/Hildegard von Bingen: "O Quam Mirabilis Est"

Published on Sep 7, 2019 Kris Lennox

"Hildegard von Bingen's fantastic "O Quam Mirabilis Est", performed on the Vermona '14. Beautiful melody. And such a great tone from the '14: perfectly suited for this kind of music. I decided to put myself in this video; I don't usually do this, as I like the focus to be the music/instrument - but in this instance I'll go with music + face. I'm wearing all-black to minimize distraction.

At certain points the lighting/balance of the camera is altering itself; excuse this.

There really is a case to be made for Gregorian Chant on synth. I can't think of a better way of not only performing great pieces of music (I'm still considering doing a concert of Gregorian Chant on synth, or possibly recording an albums' worth) - but also demonstrating the pure, raw tone of an instrument. There's no hiding with music like this. Very exposed - which is possibly also its beauty.

PS the score is up on the wall (out of sight of the camera). Hence I'm looking up throughout this performance/recording.

Enjoy/all best
