Description
The Cantigas de Santa Maria are hymns to the Virgin Mary from 13th Century Spain under the rule of King Alfonso X. Come learn about the history behind these pieces, and look at some of the more commonly performed Cantigas. There will potentially be time at the end for performance, so feel free to bring an instrument to play a piece, or begin learning one of the more than 400 Cantigas available. We will also discuss resources to find more information about the Cantigas.
