O viridissima virga
composer
author of text

Introduction
With superb control Hildegard in O viridissima virga elaborates the image of Mary as the branch of Jesse. Mary’s fertility endows the animal and vegetable kingdoms with new life and brings mankind to God through the sheer joy of contemplating the Divine agency.

from notes by Christopher Page 1982
