Works from the Court of Alfonso X

The image of women, praised in troubadour poetry, also played an important role in the court of Alfonso X the Wise. The Ensemble Discantus, consisting of seven female voices, performs a selection of pieces from Alfonso’s court: Cantigas de Santa María, Marian songs and repertory from the Codex Las Huelgas, from the most influential female monastery of the period.
