Program: #06-22, Air Date: 05/22/06

The famous Spanish early music proponent has his own label now (Pneuma) and many new releases; we'll sample some of them.

NOTE: All the music on this program are from the huge series of new discs on the Pneuma label featuring Eduardo Paniagua and the ensemble Musica Antigua (or other ensembles for early medieval and baroque Spanish material). Over twenty discs are dedicated to a vast cycle of the complete Cantigas de Santa Maria collected by Alfonso X, El Sabio (1221-1284).
 
Except for the ancient Visigothic service (which we hear in its entirety), we sampled one Cantiga from a number of discs. We will give the album name (some multi-volume sets have the same title), followed by the CD number, and below that the Cantiga number ("CSM").
