Hall of Fame
May 12, 2020 Let's start with these sources from Hildegard Publishing, spirituals and songs by Margaret Bonds, Margaret Ruthven Lang, Lily Strickland, and of course Hildegard von Bingen.
5/13/2020 Let's not neglect other favorites like Scott Joplin and Clara Schumann. The song below has good ear training possibilities. I think it would be better in D major (up a 4th).
Excerpted original poem by Hildegard:
Charity flourishes everywhere
She has given the highest King the kiss of peace
