Nouvele Amor and Cantiga 139 (Maravillosos e pïadosos)

In this video

Medieval music from France and Gallicia:
Shira Kammen, vielle; Peter Maund, frame drum & Hanneke van Proosdij, recorder perform “Nouvele Amor”, a seamless blending of the Trouvère/Troubadour song Nouvele Amor and Cantiga 139, Maravillosos e pïadosos. The Cantigas were written by Alfonso X (El Sabio). These songs only survive as a single melodic line, and the performers improvise the other parts as well as the variations. Live HD video from the SFEMS Recorder Workshop faculty concert, 2013.
