About Mother Heart
Mother Heart is a stunningly beautiful tribute to Saint Hildegard of Bingen, the brilliant 12th Century mystic, abbess, and visionary who drew from ancient wisdom that views the entire cosmos as perfectly harmonized music. Saint Hildegard taught that every being, every entity, and every movement produces a sound inaudible to most of us, yet in harmonic relation to all other sounds.
Hildegard possessed the extraordinary gift of being able to hear this extremely subtle but very real cosmic music. She believed that the function of earthly music is to open a portal to the higher realms of harmony that remind us of our soul’s origin and rejoin our voices and spirits to the very melody of life.
Owing to the fact that Hildegard’s compositions were truly divinely inspired, and that Susan Lincoln has rendered Hildegard’s songs with unparalleled devotion and precision, you’ll find that Mother Heart is highly conducive music for meditation. This recording is also the perfect music for yoga, as well as ideal music for relaxation and stress-relief. Many expectant mothers choose Mother Heart as their birth music during labor and delivery, because St. Hildegard’s songs are exceptionally calming.
