The Troubadours Are Here

This weekend  the beautiful Gothic church of San Domingos de Bonaval hosts the medieval music festival “Músicas de la Itinerancia,” which is part of the programme celebrating the 800th anniversary of Santiago Cathedral’s consecration.

Under the title “Medieval Galician Troubadours and Their Time,” daily concerts by ensembles from Denmark, Switzerland, Germany, France and Spain will feature the music compositions that minstrels performed in village after village throughout Europe, with special emphasis on medieval Galician-Portuguese lyrical poetry and its numerous “cantigas” of love, satyr, friendship or “maldizer.”
