Since the ninth century, the routes to Santiago de Compostela leading to the sanctuary of St. James have attracted countless pilgrims and exercised a potent mystique. What has received less attention is the music originally sung during the services in honour of the saint. Thanks to Marcel Peres’s in-depth study of the Codex Calixtinus, preserved at the Cathedral of Santiago, this recording can present a reconstruction of the musical gems contained in the rare twelfth-century manuscript which attests to multiple stylistic influences encountered on this indispensable and all-embracing pilgrimage.

Depuis le IXe siècle, les chemins de Compostelle qui conduisent au sanctuaire de saint Jacques attirent nombre de pèlerins et suscitent une réelle fascination. Mais que sait-on du chant des offices consacrés à la gloire de l'apôtre dès l'origine ? Grâce au magnifique travail de Marcel Peres sur le Codex Calixtinus conservé à la cathédrale de Santiago, cet album y répond en restituant les trésors de ce précieux manuscrit musical du XIIe siècle, témoin des multiples influences stylistiques qu'offrait cet itinéraire incontournable et fédérateur.
