Cantigas Volume 1 cover


Cantigas de Santa Maria of Alfonso X, el Sabio

A Performing edition

Volume 1 – Prologue to Cantiga 100

This series (four volumes in all) contains new transcriptions of the famous Cantigas de Santa Maria of Alfonso X, el Sabio. The transcriptions are based chiefly on the Escorial 'Codice Princeps' manuscript (E1). Each cantiga is printed with the note-shapes from the manuscript above the modern notation to aid the understanding of the period notation. This also allows performers to develop their own transcriptions for performance.

190 pages sewn-paperback with Introduction, appendices and 15 illustrations from the manuscript. 248mm x 171mm. ISBN 978-0-9552440-7-0  (3rd Edition)

Price: £ 17.50 plus p&p
