It should be first stated as it is on the box; "All pieces are Cantigas compositions based on original melodies". Notwitstanding this, the listening is terribly pleasant and you have a feeling that they have fun in playing together. So, although more in line with german productions like "Verlag der Spilleute", it is an excellent introduction to the genre.
