We explore contemporary and traditional music conveying wisdom from ancient times this week. Featured are Celtic-tinged arrangements of the sacred chants of Hildegard von Bingen (1098-1179) and William Jackson's music developed from a medieval manuscript, created on a tiny Scottish island in the 13th century.
