O nobilissima viriditas

O nobilissima viriditas / que radicas in sole / et que in candida serenitate / luces in rota / quam nulla terrena excellentia / comprehendit: / Tu circumdata es / amplexibus divinorum ministeriorum. / Tu rubes ut aurora / et ardes ut solis flamma.

O most noble verdant / who are rooted in the sun / and in bright serenity / do shine in the light of the wheel / which no earthly excellence / can aspire to: / you are encompassed / by the embrace of divine ministry; / you glow like the sunrise / and burn like the flame of the sun.

- Hildegard of Bingen

Harmony of the Spheres explores a dialogue between human and universe, between the eternal and the present moment. Meditative surround soundscapes, inspiring Medieval tunes by Hildegard of Bingen and improvisation combine with original compositions to produce a soothing tapestry.

The guest performer in this morning’s improvisation is moogist Kari Ikonen.
