Artist: Hesperion Xxi
Format: CD

More Info:

After more than 220 albums, Jordi Savall still surprises us with this exhilarating recording of a masterpiece from the Middle Ages. Compiled in 1325 and rediscovered in 1904, the Codex Las Huelgas is the only manuscipt of this time still kept in it's original place : a Cistercian monastery on the road to Compostella in northern Spain. It grants us a privileged access to the music written in the 3 centuries prior to it's completion. Jordi Savall selected 11 pieces among the 186 included in the collection. His ensembles La Capella Reial de Catalunya and Hespèrion XXI reveal all the beauties of this fascinating music.
