"...to enclose the present moment; to make it stay; to fill it fuller and fuller, with the past, the present and the future, until it shone, whole, bright, deep with understanding."

Virgina Woolf, The Years


Favus distillans: Ursula virgo est

A dripping honeycomb was the virgin Ursula
Milk and honey under her tongue

Like a fruit ladden garden and splendour of flowers
She gathered a throng of virgins around her

Therefore rejoice, daughters, in the noblest dawn

A personal selection of Hildegarde von Bingen's Favus distillans, from 11000 Virgins: Chants for the Feast of Saint Ursula.
