Hespèrion XXI
La Capella Reial de Catalunya
Jordi Savall

February 1993 in Cardona, Spain

The 'Cantigas de Santa Maria' (Canticles of Holy Mary) 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 characterised by the mention of the Virgin Mary in every song.

The reissue in remastered multichannel sound of this 1993 landmark recording enables us to hear Jordi Savall and his ensembles at their best. Instrumental and vocal pieces alternate and paint a vivid picture of a repertoire, that contributed much to the birth of Western music.

"There has been a spate of recordings of early Spanish music in recent times, but few of those that have come my way were made by the Spaniards themselves...It is a recording of immense charm and simplicity. The short modal melodies are compelling, even after the constant repetition of multiple stanzas...The Spaniards themselves come into their own, as one would expect, in the highly rhythmic songs (Miragres fremosos is a typical example), with their strange uneven phrase lengths. The instrumental interludes provide light relief" Gramophone, January 1994.
