Notes and Editorial Reviews

In the thirteenth century, King Alfonso el Sabio (the wise), gathered together in his 'Cantigas de Santa Maria' four hundred songs (cantigas). These mystical, non-liturgical pieces were sung at various festivities, sometimes - as we see from the illuminated manuscripts - accompanied by dancing. Their form, verses with dialogue between texts and instruments, and so on. The 'Cantigas' involve celebration, dancing, storytelling, tales of miracles. The language used is Gallego-Portuguese, the language of lyric poetry at that time in the Iberian Peninsula.
