Determined to be the king of three religions, Alfonso X gathered together a large number of scholars at his court that led to one of the most brilliant cultural periods of the Middle Ages. This series pays tribute to this period of splendour in three concerts consisting of various kinds of cantigas, songs in honour of the Virgin (whose worship flourished during this period) and troubadour music performed by female voices, a reflection of a historical period that extolled women through courtly love.
