 Miracles of Sant'Iago - Chant for St. James from the Codex Calixtinus

Beginning in the mid-11th Century, the tomb of St. James, located in the Spanish village, Santiago de Compostela, became one of Europe's most important sites for pilgrim's visits. The Way of St James has existed for over a thousand years, one of the most important Christian pilgrimages, with legend holding that St. James's remains were carried by boat from Jerusalem to northern Spain. This setting of chant, edited by the renowned quartet Anonymous 4, is but one selection of polyphony taken from 12th-century manuscripts. It is sung here in the largest shrine to the Virgin Mary, by a prominent women's chorus that sings regularly near Walden Pond.
