The inescapable charm of O Euchari

O Euchari is the name of a piece of music by Hildegard von Bingen, and performed by Emily van Evera. What’s special about it? Well only that it keeps cropping up as a sample in amazing pieces of music. Here’s a little sample of tracks with that sample:

Emily van Evera – Vision (O Euchari in Leta Via) (1982)

The Beloved – The Sun Rising (1989)

Orbital – Belfast (1991)

Delerium feat. Zoë Johnston – Love (2003)

 

Am I missing any? Very probably…
