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 felix anima is a responsory for the feast of a now obscure local saint, which expresses in soaringly poetic words and music the Christian vision of the saints in glory.
