Camino De Santiago
Format: COMPACT DISC
The "Camino" to the grave of the Apostle James in Santiago de Compostela was already one of the most important pilgrimage routes in the Middle Ages. In addition, there were other important pilgrimage destinations in Spain, such as the monastery of Montserrat or the church of Villasirga. The music of the pilgrims and the minstrels who reported on these pilgrimages in Spain can be found in famous manuscripts such as the Llibre Vermell de Montserrat, the Codex Calixtinus and the Cancionero de Palacio. The "Spielleyt from Freiburg" revive medieval life on the Spanish pilgrimage routes, and use instruments such as those found in illustrations of old manuscripts and on church portals.
