The Spanish Hour 2403: Music for a Pilgrimage

From Candice Agree | Part of the The Spanish Hour with Candice Agree series | 58:30

From as far back as the ninth century, perhaps earlier, pilgrims have followed El Camino de Santiago to the shrine of St. James in Compostela. On this edition of The Spanish Hour, we hear selections from the Codex Calixtinus, a 12th-century guidebook of sorts, containing advice and music for the pilgrimage. We’ll hear selections, as performed by Ensemble Organum.

Since the ninth century, the routes to Santiago de Compostela leading to the sanctuary of St. James have attracted countless pilgrim and exercised a potent mystique. What has achieved less attention is the music originally sung during the services in honor of the saint. Marcel Pérès's in-depth study of the Codex Calixtinus, preserved at the Cathedral of Santiago, has led to a reconstruction of the musical gems contained in the rare twelfth-century manuscript. This recording attest to the multiple stylistic influences encountered on the pilgrimage in the early 12th century.

From Candice Agree | Part of the The Spanish Hour with Candice Agree series | 58:30

In 1904, Carlos Fernandez Shaw introduced Manuel de Falla to "The Three-cornered hat," Pedro Antonio de Alarcón’s satire of village life in Andalucía, written in 1874. It’s best known by Manuel de Falla’s music for the ballet of 1919. Falla’s original plan for the novel was to produce it as a pantomime-farce. Joaquín Turina conducted the premiere of "The Magistrate and the Miller’s Wife" on April 7, 1917. We'll hear the complete work, along with selections from "El Amor Brujo."

Picasso_small Many have interpreted the elegance, sensuality, and erotic suggestiveness of Manuel de Falla’s music as overt expressions of his homosexuality. Falla’s works for the stage: "El Amor Brujo "(Love, the Magician) and "El Corregidor y la molinera" (The Magistrate and the Miller’s Wife), a work which would later become "El sombrero de tres picos "(The Three-Cornered Hat) are featured this week.
