Hildegard Bambina e La Vergine Nera – The Black Madonna

..and so we leave for The Basilica of Saint Francis of Assisi- where Saint Francis is buried- to share in the love that has been overflowing in all of our hearts these past months- that light of our beautiful young sopranos, their families, our Hildegard Child, our Black Madonna, our composer, our harpist, our costumist and everyone who has poured so much love into our cantata. May their heartfelt devotion ring throughout our world and may their message of peace and reconciliation reign forever more here on earth.
