The Kronos Quartet played music by a great female composer of antiquity. She was born over 900 years ago and for most of her 80-plus years, she lived in seclusion in a hilltop monastery in Germany. We heard one of many songs she wrote for her nuns to sing at their devotions. Who is this saint, composer, and poet whose music has only recently been rediscovered?
