Cantor de Silos; Antionario Mozarabe de Silos



This CD is one of the 5 CDs where old spanish music is explored. On the first four CD Atrium Musicae is  involved under the direction of Gregorio Paniagua (the brother of Eduardo Paniagua) 
his album with the works of the Codex Calixtinus (based on the version used in Silos) and the Antofonaria Mozarabe, the producer  Roborto Pla uses the Cantor of Silos and they are singing full of devotion and it does not sound heavy. The Antifonria Mozarabe is absolutely wonderful and unique. Although the various elements (5 pieces) are sounding a bit repetitive, because they have similarities.



The brother Eduardo Pnaigue became very famous because he later produced and recorded all the Cantigas de Santa Maria, (and they are wonderful ) but also he recorded more Visigotic-Mozarabe pieces, which you find on one of my posts; He also uses a light voice  for singing these wonderful pieces.

Eduardo Paniagua; Canto Visigotico-Mozarabe


I came to Eduardo Paniaua, because I was interested in the background of the Romanesque art in and around Catalonia and came to this beautiful RECORDING.



track 2 Surgam et Ibo


One of the most beautiful songs I have ever heard and a wonderful voice on top!
track 7; Oracion de Jeremias; Short version 2.17 min, but very good video



track 7; Oracion de Jeremias; Full version

Ensemble Organum; Codex Calixtinus
