Schola Magdalena is dedicated to the performance of medieval music – from Medieval chant and Gregorian chant to Hildegard of Bingen to the polyphonic masterpieces of Dufay – as well as modern music for women’s voices by Canadian composers.
Stephanie, thank you for the gift of that ecstatic, contemplative five-part “Alleluia” you composed and performed with your fellow singers on “O gracious light.” It is an exquisite album all told, but that piece especially restoreth my soul. I’ve been puzzling since I first felt called to play it every single morning and every single night, why it shatters and remakes me every time I hear it. … Thank you for writing it, singing it and recording it. It is a very great blessing.

Great sound and some imaginative work with organum set this women’s ensemble apart from many chant recordings. A nice mix of polyphony and Gregorian. Highly recommended to all lovers of chant and medieval polyphony.
