Seven Songs of Love


Seven Songs of Love
Entrancing Love Songs from the Galician Poet
February 15 - 17, 2008

The Gallician poet/singer Martin Codax's Seven Songs of Love, Western Europe's first song cycle, depicts the longing of a woman waiting on the beach at Vigo for her lover to return from the sea. Treating love in all its guises, the songs of the troubadours and lively dances for fiddles, harps, citole, flutes, and percussion celebrate the joy of love requited.
