Viriditas, literally meaning greenness in Latin, was a word used often by Saint Hildegard von Bingen, a renowned 12th century mystic. Hildegard uses the term viriditas as a metaphor for the health of the spirit, and relates our human power to grow and change to the powers of nature shown in its ability to provide for us. Much of my graduate work has involved research into the different facets of Saint Hildegard’s works, so I thought it only appropriate to acknowledge her in my graduate recital.

Before I decided to come to Longy, my life was completely upended after the death of my brother, Patrick. When my life is completely flooded with grief, I’ve tried to find new ways to use music to make me feel more connected to the world around me. This recital is a collection of pieces that connect me to all the different facets of human connection with nature. We will explore how Viriditas, “the green force of life, expanding into the Universe,” can sustain us when connections feel lost.

Hannah Anderson is a student of Vanessa Breault Mulvey.
