Cantiga 1- Des Oge Mais Quer'eu Trobar
Artist: Jessica Comeau
This cantiga is the first of 420 Cantigas de Santa Maria (Songs of Holy Mary) written in Galician-Portuguese in the court of the Spanish King Alfonso X, el Sabio in the 13th century. These songs were very popular among pilgrims to Santiago de Compostela. This first of the cantigas celebrates a popular theme in medieval devotional music, literature, and art: the Seven Joys of Mary.
