'A truly fascinating compilation' (Gramophone)

'If you value excellence wherever it is to be found, then this disc, in its quiet way, is a piece of perfection' (Classic CD)

'Highly recommended' (Fanfare, USA)
This sequence, one of Hildegard’s finest and most rhapsodic, is addressed to St Rupert, the patron of Hildegard’s monastery on the Rupertsberg, but it wonderfully expresses the longing for the city of Jerusalem, both on earth and in heaven, which animated the crusading movement.

from notes by Christopher Page © 1998

O Jerusalem, l’une des séquences les plus belles et les plus rhapsodiques d’Hildegarde, s’adresse à saint Rupert (le patron du monastère d’Hildegarde, sur le Rupertsberg), tout en exprimant merveilleusement l’aspiration à la cité de Jérusalem, sur terre comme au ciel, qui anima le mouvement des croisades.

extrait des notes rédigées par Christopher Page © 1998
Français: Hypérion

O Jerusalem, eine von Hildegards schönsten und schwärmerischten Sequenzen ist an den Heiligen Rupert gerichtet, den Schutzpatron von Hildegards Kloster auf dem Rupertsberg, aber sie drückt auch auf wunderbare Weise das Sehnen nach der Stadt Jerusalem, im Himmel und auf Erden, aus, welches der Kreuzzugsbewegung ihren Impuls gab.
