Medieval Spanish Songs
Cheryl Koehler, voice
You'll hear a lively Andalucían nuba from Moorish Córdoba, some handsome melodies from the convent of Las Huelgas in northern Spain, a haunting Sephardic lament, and a selection of songs from the beautifully illuminated Cantigas de Santa María manuscript from King Alfonso X and his court in Toledo. The group performs on reproductions of the period's unusual instruments, in the ancient languages of Galician-Portuguese, Ladino, and Latin.
