O coruscans lux stellarum

author of text

The music and poetry of Hildegard of Bingen—abbess, mystic and writer—has come to be widely appreciated only in recent years. She gathered together her 77 sacred songs in a liturgically ordered collection called the Symphonia armonie celestium revelationum; O coruscans lux is designated as proper to the ceremony of dedicating a church. Its text apostrophizes the church as a place of divine splendour and light; the melody is of appropriately soaring, rhapsodic freedom.
