Quick Overview

Trotta's composition is an energetic reimagining of timeless text and tune from the 12th century poet, composer, and philosopher Hildegard of Bingen. The marriage of the chant Caritas Abundat with a text taken from Liber Divinorum Operum (The Book of Divine Works) creates an entirely new work that expresses themes of empowerment. There is a reflective sense of the empowerment that comes from singing in a choir, especially the power of belonging to a group united for a purpose greater than oneself.
