Description: Hildegurls Electric Ordo Virtutum is a staged musical adaptation of the "Ordo Virtutum" (the play of the virtues)—a morality play by the German Abbess Hildegard von Bingen (1098-1179). Four women composer/singers—Lisa Bielawa, Kitty Brazelton, Eve Beglarian, and Elaine Kaplinsky—each adapt a section of von Bingen's work in their own unique style, resulting in four distinct high-tech soundtracks that support their live voices. Using a combination of recorded samples and both electric and acoustic instruments, the four women bring a 21st-century perspective to bear on this 12th-century work.
