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.
