Synopsis

Product Description
The Cantigas de Santa Maria are 420 poems with musical notation, written during the reign of Alfonso X The Wise (1221-1284) and often attributed to him. It is one of the largest collections of monophonic songs from the Middle Ages and is characterized by the mention of the Virgin Mary in every song. Instrumental and vocal pieces alternate and paint a vivid picture of a repertoire that contributed much to the birth of Western music. Remastered in multichannel sound, this 1993 landmark recording enables us to hear Jordi Savall and his ensembles at their best.
