(London Telegraph) A series of compositions by Hildegard of Bingen, a Benedictine abbess who died in 1179, have been released as an album.

The producer, Guy Sigsworth, has reworked them to create “ambient remixes”. Sigsworth is a classically trained musician known for his work with Madonna, Britney Spears and Seal.

The album, Hildegard, is being released by Decca and industry experts predict it will become a chart success.
