Hildegard von Bingen's (1098–1179) Circle of Wisdom Songs performed by Anima contained on CD were selected from the symphony of the harmony of celestial revelations. The introduction and notes by Elizabeth Thompson with English translation by WR Johnson and printed at the Janus Press in 2001. This publication was planned to celebrate Hildegard's 900th birthday. Claire van Vliet made the pulp paintings with Katie MacGregor in Whiting, ME, who also made the colored sheets and covers. The pop-ups were executed by Audrey Holden, the chemise and slipcase by Judi Conant and Mary Richardson. Dynamic pop-up, drawn from images in the hymns and rendered against a backdrop of pulp paintings, blossom from the page spreads.
