Day 217(12 days late): Laus Trinitati

Posted by annagrace under Days 201-300

Yesterday, Sept. 17, was the anniversary of Saint Hildegard of Bingen‘s death, and her feast day. Among many things, Hildegard was one of the first women to write music that was recognized by the church. Laus Trinitati, or O Praise Be To You Holy Trinity is a chant that she wrote which is included in the hymnal for the Episcopal church. In honor of her feast day, my mom sang this in both services at my church back home, so I decided to sing it, too!

Since it is a chant, it is very free form, tempo wise. I recoded myself just singing it in English as I felt it. It says in the directors hymnal that it can be sung by itself or with B and E handbells chiming at the end of each line. Since I dont have handbells, I put those notes into garage band and used the church bells effect on it. I think it turned out pretty good!
