Capella de Ministrers: Las Cantigas de Santa Maria

This album celebrates the 800th anniversary of the birth of Alfonso the Wise, King of Castile and León. Although Alfonso reputedly had limited skills at diplomacy and warfare, he developed a lover of poetry and music at an early age, and later commissioned the Cantigas de Santa María, a collection of 100 songs in praise of the Virgin Mary, a selection of which are presented here by Carles Magraner and the Capella de Ministrers.
