It is the earliest morality play by more than a century, and the only Medieval musical drama to survive with an attribution for both the text and the music.

Sequentia’s Hildegard von Bingen Project: Initially in collaboration with the West German Radio Cologne (WDR Köln) Sequentia made a series of recordings of the complete works of Germany’s most important medieval composer, the abbess and visionary Hildegard von Bingen (1098-1179). As the 900th anniversary of Hildegard’s birth approached in 1998, Barbara Thornton (1950-1998) made a compelling case to BMG Classics to re-record Hildegard’s music-drama Ordo Virtutum.

Exclusive discount for Prime members. Sample this album Artist (Sample). I have been listening to this album on and off for months now, and keep coming back to it. It is a great recording of one of the earliest pieces of combined chant and instrumental music still in existence, composed in around 1150. It is a surprisingly long morality play - again, one of the earliest extant examples of this genre as well - taking up two CDs.
