The Flores Rosarum vocal ensemble was found in 2007 by sr. Susi Ferfoglia and a group of female singers fascinated by the music of St. Hildegard of Bingen. Her works have become a core repertoire for the ensemble; this also reflects in the band’s name which refers to one of Hildegard’s responsoria. The ensembles’s members take numerous extensive artistic and scientific activities, what helps them in a deep research into the manuscripts every time they start a new project. Knowing the details of medieval notation, as well as liturgical, historical and social contexts of the chants, opens the way of interpretation focused on the faithfulness to the original source. Flores Rosarum performs also the Polish repertoire from the liturgical-musical manuscripts. Apart from intense concert agenda, the ensemble takes also part in liturgical celebrations, to promote a semiologic approach in performing Gregorain chant.
