Miracles of Compostella

Medieval chant & polyphony for St James from the Codex Calixtinus


anon.:

Venite omnes cristicole

Salve festa dies

Vox nostra resonet

Regem regum dominum

Nostra phalanx plaudat leta

Ad sepulcrum beati Iacobi

Ad superni regis decus

Iacobe servorum

Benedicamus domino

In hac die laudes

Cunctipotens genitor

Psallat chorus celestium

Alleluia: Gratulemur et letemur

Ascendens Ihesus in montem

Qui pius ac mitis

Gratulantes celebremus festum

Iacobe sancte tuum

O adiutor omnium seculorum

Portum in ultimo

Congaudeant catholici

Clemens servulorum

Since the late twelfth century, the Cathedral of Santiago in Compostela has possessed a manuscript entitled Jacobus (or Codex Calixtinus). How it found its way to Compostela is not known for certain, but it is undoubtedly a French product, probably compiled or written in Cluny around 1150.

Although they represent a mere ten percent of the music in Jacobus, the polyphonic works have received attention from scholars because they are among the earliest such pieces to have been written down. But the notation in Jacobus is ambiguous as to rhythm and metre, as well as to alignment of pitches between the voice parts in the polyphony.
