Iberian Triangle

La Romanesca presents a portrait of the musical diversity of Spanish song in the period immediately preceding both the great expulsion and Columbus' great voyages. Music of christian, moorish, jewish Spain before 1492.

Imagine Spain's most glorious, powerful and corrupt era! La Romanesca has constructed a portrait of the musical diversity of Spanish song before 1492, that is, the great expulsion and Columbus' great voyages. A highly evocative and historically enlightening collection of Sephardic songs, the 13th century 'Cantigas de Santa Maria', Jarchas and music from the Christian courts of the 15th and 16th Century.


La Romanesca

A leading force in early music in Australia since 1978, La Romanesca has developed a special interest in the performance of mediaeval monophonic and polyphonic song, although the group's repertory spans the twelfth to seventeenth centuries.

Press quote

“... fearless virtuosity.”
