Al Qantarah - Abballati, abballati! - Songs and sounds in Medieval Sicily (2001)

Traditional

Al Qantarah

The pieces from this disc come mainly from two collections: th 12th century “Troparium de Catania” conserved in the National Library of Madrid (ms. 19421) transcribed by David Hiley, and the “Corpus of Sicilian Folk Music” (Palermo, 1957) wich contains pieces collected directly from the peaple by Alberto Favara about a century ago. The use of these sources guarantees a good assortment of contexts, ranging from the religious to the lay, from the cultured to the polular tradition.
