Product details

A fascinating collection of 21 vibrant tracks based on melodies from four mediæval courts, those of Eleanor of Aquitaine (1122 - 1204), Gaon of Tiberias (1000-1077), Saladin of Egypt (1138-1193) and Alfonso X of Castile and Leon (1252-1284). Cantigas creatively explore sounds and expression within an historical context, brought to life by an array of authentic mediæval instruments revealing the unique style and character of each nationality.
