This setting of Hildegard von Bingen's Ave Generosa text uses a hauntingly joyful tonality, paying homage to the mysterious story of Mary. A beautiful middle section is surrounded by contrasting, modal beginning and ending sections. The juxtaposition of sustained and moving moments holds true to the composer's style, while the harmonic structure and vocal construction offer something very fresh.
