ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
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.

Susan’s recording of Karitas from Mother Heart was recently handpicked by Eckhart Tolle for inclusion on his new CD, Music for Inner Stillness.

Artist biography:
Susan Lincoln is a classically trained musician and former opera singer whose passions and studies have led her into the healing arts. She is also a beloved and inspiring teacher who sings the music of 12th century abbess and mystic Hildegard of Bingen every day of her life.

Susan has led groups in voice and creative expression for more than 25 years. Her eclectic journey through opera, sound and energy healing, creative movement, and mystical chant provides a rich soil for spiritual exploration.

She is founder of Hilde Girls, song circles for women that use the wisdom and music of Hildegard of Bingen to strengthen and enrich women’s lives.

Susan’s relationship with Hildegard of Bingen began in 1981 and exploded in 1999 when she first sang Hildegard’s songs in the chapel of The Benedictine Abbey of St. Hildegard. Remembering the experience, Susan says, “It was as if Hildegard herself came into my heart and voice. I was trembling, my knees were buckling, and I had the experience of being sung.”

Soon afterwards, Susan returned to the U.S. and began sharing her newly discovered passion with other women. She continues to share the music and wisdom Hildegard of Bingen through ongoing classes in Austin, Texas, and has led numerous classes and retreats throughout the U.S. and Europe. Susan’s passionate curiosity, exuberant spirit, compassionate heart, and beautiful voice and make experiences with her irresistible.

I love it. I play it awake and asleep.
I play Songs for the Sacred Feminine by
Hildegard of Bingen when I go to bed at night to lull me to sleep and keep me there. I also play it when I am awake, I love it.

Beautiful, haunting, feminine, healing music
If you like Gregorian chant, you'll LOVE this CD. This is the best rendition of Hildegard of Bingen music I've heard. Susan Lincoln's voice rolls through the complex melodies with precision and passion. Put this in your car and never have road rage again.



Wonderful, sounds of worship in ancient cathedrals

Divine feminine legacy
Having heard about Susan Lincoln's Hildegirls group for years, I am humbled to finally hear this recording. Susan's gracefully powerful voice eloquently inhabits the sacred feminine. I am grateful to be a woman. Namaste.

Ethereal
I write Morning Pages to this CD.
It's spiritually distracting.
