Format: Audio CD
This is a fabulous recording.

I've had two CDs of the Cantigas de Santa Maria, recorded by the Clemencic Consort, for years, and was fairly satisfied with them. But their interpretation is, to be honest, merely ordinary, compared with what is on this disk.

Musical director Joel Cohen has brought together Moroccan musicians and singers with not just Spanish and Occitanian but Berber and Arab roots, to bring to these songs the Moorish influence they undoubtedly had originally. And what a difference this makes! Suddenly the Cantigas de Santa Maria are alive, dark and smoky and passionate and spiritual.

Alfonso el Sabio (the Wise) was one of the most remarkable kings in European history. He was a scientist, an astronomer and a law-maker. He drew together Christians, Jews, Muslims, mystics of all three religions, troubadours, poets, dancers, men and women at his court. His commissioning of the Cantigas was one of his most inspired creative acts. And this interpretation of them is simply magical. Thank you to the singers and musicians.

I found this version a bit gloomy, not as uplifting as the Ensemble Gilles Binchois version.
