ARCHAIC MUSICAL REMAINS
Vox Suavis dares to go a bit further and imerses audiences in the Cantigas de Santa María, taking them as the most prominent expression of the Cult of the Virgin Mary in the Iberian Peninsula.
The ensemble nourishes its interpretation with archaic musical remains from local oral traditions. Although these traditional pieces cannot be dated, they curiously show a close melodic, formal, metric and thematic relation to the Cantigas.
