Hildegard



Isn't it interesting that the only composer to ever achieve sainthood was a woman? You can find some excellent recordings of her music here.

Sorry to be so contrary, but Hildegard was never actually sainted.

A Jewish composer cares whether a Catholic composer is sainted or not? What difference does it make?

A female composer who just learned this fact (and could share it with her class, updating the information in their textbook) was simply making a point.
