Ensemble Antequera "Eno nome de Maria"

This cd (Alpha 501), by Ensemble Antequera, with singer Johannette Zomer, is a collection of Cantigas de Santa Maria. These songs tell of miracles (miragres) by the Virgin Mary, or are in praise of Her(loores). These are secular, troubadour songs, loved by king Alfonso X "The Wise" (1221–1284), whose great ambition it was to be a trobador.
