Try searching for "Lingua Ignota". It is a spiritual conlang which she used in conjunction with Latin to write hymns and prayers. It's not really a fully developped conlang as we'd understand it (though that could simply be an artifact of her not writing it all down, or else her notes were lost!); but is more of a naming language. Almost every biography of Hildegard mentions LI in conjunction with her hymns; but none of them really go in depth. Naturally, none of them reproduce more than a small handful of words as a tantalising hint. Once our dear Sally turns up again, ask her about Hildegard. As I recall, she's working on a Lingua Ignota to English glossary.
