Album Notes
Cantigas de Santa Maria
Canso Early Music Ensemble

The thirteenth century collection of songs gathered under the title of 'Cantigas de Santa Maria del Rey Alfonso el Sabio' are probably not exclusively the work of the great Spanish king Alfonso X El Sabio (the Wise) (1221-1284) but their collation and publication, richly illuminated and illustrated, was certainly at his initiative. It formed part of a wider program carried out by intellectuals at his court to translate from the Arabic and publish works of history, law and theology.

There are 426 Cantigas, almost all with music, written in Galician, usual for the literature of the period. Just as the Cantigas' lyrics originate in well-known stories about the Virgin but make use of courtly love motifs from the Occitan region, so their musical styles reflect the immediate musical surroundings. They include forms of chant of a specific Spanish timbre, popular song, and many melodies that are at least reminiscent of Arab rhythmical patterns. Not only do the Cantigas provide unique insights into the devotional and musical life of Spain in the Middle Ages, but it seems likely that the Cantigas are in fact also important evidence of cultural cross-fertilization between the undocumented musical traditions of the Andalusian Moors and those of their Christian successors.
