Vermona '14/Gregorian Chant (Hildegard von Bingen: "Caritas Habundat")

Published on Dec 31, 2019 Kris Lennox

"Hello all - and a happy new year/decade when it arrives. Appropriately, a little von Bingen to finish off the decade. If this work sounds familiar: the initial melody/phrase was used as the horn solo melody (first phrase) on the track 'Life' from the movie 'Prometheus'. The phrase ending is slightly altered in Prometheus, but the seed can clearly be heard. The second horn phrase is, however, authentic to von Bingen.

These melodies (Gregorian chants in general) have been part of my musical heritage since early childhood, and have been part of the family for many generations. Hence my plan to record and release an 'official' set in the near future.

In any instance, the coming decade will certainly be an interesting one.

Caritas habundat in omnia,
de imis excellentissima
Super sidera,

Atque amantissima in omnia,
Quia summo Regi
Osculum pacis dedit.

All best
