Martín Códax : Cantigas de Amigo - A discography

This is an "under construction" and for now a deemed complete discography of the Cantigas de Amigo of Martín Códax.


BIOGRAPHY

The identity of Martin Codax is essentially synonymous with his seven surviving Cantigas de Amigo, which have been dated somewhat precariously to c.1230. The "cantiga de amigo" is a particular genre of Iberian medieval poetry, intended to express the female perspective on absent love. Together with other genres of cantiga, they survive in quantity. However, those of Martin Codax are the only ones to survive with music, and indeed the only medieval cantigas aside from the massive Cantigas de Santa María to survive with music. As the only secular examples of a primarily secular tradition, they are thus of unique value, even though the music for the sixth cantiga has not survived. They are written in Galician-Portuguese, the dominant vernacular literary language of medieval Spain, and apparently form a cycle. They are the most representative Iberian example of the broader phenomenon of troubadour songs.
