The ear of Christopher Columbus

CD info

This recording shows the three musical styles that coloured the aural  environment of Christopher Columbus: the lively Italian strophic profane music from the homeland of his childhood; the Spanish love songs, with their unique melancholy, from the court of the Catholic Kings; and the Franco-Flemish virtuosic polyphony that Columbus surely heard during his last years at the Spanish court in Valladolid. The result is a wonderful discovery of the most famous Discoverer, illuminated by the beautiful voices of the Huelgas Ensemble.
