Seraphic Fire at Goshen College Music Center

Grammy-nominated Seraphic Fire makes their return appearance to Sauder Concert Hall for a performance and to record their latest project. The Miami- based vocal ensemble will perform Ordo Virtutum, or Play of the Virtues, a medieval musical drama written by the 12th-century abbess Hildegard of Bingen, universally revered as one of the greatest minds of the Middle Ages. Told in Hildegard’s haunting plainchant compositions, the “Soul” struggles between the pull of the Virtues and the Devil, and features a cast including Mercy, Victory, Patience, Discretion and Charity. The women of Seraphic Fire bring this nearly millennia-old masterpiece back to life.
