Como poden per sas culpas (viola duo)
Title: Como poden per sas culpas, from Cantigas de Santa Maria
Composer: unknown, arr. David Gable
Instrumentation: Two Violas
Printout: 2 pages
Note: Cantigas de Santa Maria (Songs of St Mary) is a collection of devotional songs written down during the reign of King Alphonso X of Castile. It is one of the most important sources of early music in the western world. All of the Cantigas are monophonic, but I have provided a rhythmic second voice reminiscent of the drones and percussion that often accompanied music in the middle ages.
