It's an ancient musical pilgrimage of the Camino de Santiago on The Spanish Hour in June, Mondays @ 10pm


Travel with host Candice Agree on June 6th

6/6 Music for a Pilgrimage From as far back as the ninth century, perhaps earlier, pilgrims have followed El Camino de Santiago to the shrine of St. James in Compostela. On this edition of The Spanish Hour, we hear selections from the Codex Calixtinus, a 12th-century guidebook of sorts, containing advice and music for the pilgrimage. Ensemble Organum performs selections.

6/13 The Genius of Isaac Albéniz Miguel Baselga and Judith Jáuregui play keyboard masterpieces, including Spanish dances and the Suite española by the Spanish composer and piano virtuoso Isaac Albéniz.

6/20 From Renaissance to Galant Works by Francisco Guerrero, Joan and Josep Pla, and Domenico Scarlatti are representative of Spanish Music from the 16th through 18th centuries. We offer a sample of their works this week.

6/27 Dances, Impressions, Rhapsodies, and more From Rodrigo to Lecuono to Ginastera to Frank, old and new favorites from Span and Latin America.
