Be The Change
"Be The Change" is the theme of the Easter Festival Psalm 2022 in Graz and draws on "17 Sustainable Development Goals" of the United Nations. What can we all do to create a world that is fair, free and safe for everyone? Psalm 2022 seeks the answer with the help of seven of these goals, which are illuminated with great music.
Goal 3: Good Health and Well-being
sung harmonic recipes of Saint Hildegard
She was an influential woman at a time when very few women were granted any kind of standing in public life: Hildegard von Bingen. The abbess looked after the physical and mental wellbeing of her nuns, identified the healing powers of herbs and tinctures and composed music for she was convinced that the harmony of music was heaven-sent and could heal both spirit and body. Maria Jonas and her female ensemble Ars Choralis Coeln sing Hildegard’s harmonious prescriptions.
