Miracles of Sant'iago

This CD just got delivered to my home this evening. I bought it from Amazon. It is essentially music from Book 1 of the Codex Calixtinus. This is one of the oldest polyphonic chant in the style of Aquitanian or florid organum.

Incidentally, Book 5 of the Codex Calixtinus is the original 12th century pilgrim's guide by Aymery Picaud describing the road to Santiago and all the towns and villages along the way. It is still use as a reference for all modern Camino de Santiago travel guide.
