I got a twitter notification a few weeks back.

Elionor d’Aquitània i Hildegarda de Bingen? La connexió es va produïr i el compositor @kevinefclark va recollir-la a una de les seves obres https://t.co/4lQ9aUYghb #inspiraciómedieval pic.twitter.com/M2OiufpmvU— SonsEdatMitjana (@SonsEdatMitjana) January 23, 2019

It was a bit of a surprise, but totally wonderful! A Catalan radio station had featured Eleanor and Hildegard on their weekly show about sound in the middle ages. Check it out.

How cool is it that they have a whole weekly show about sound in the middle ages?

Google translate was pretty good on the written Catalan, but listening to the radio segment gave my high school Castilian Spanish some trouble. They were describing things I had personally done, which made it easier. They also chose some music from Cucumbers & Gin to underscore the beginning of the segment, which made it harder to focus on understanding the Catalan.

I hope you have an easier time with it than I did.
