[First some corrections: The label is Pneuma, in Spain, and the year of release in 1998.] Spain had two Golden Ages: in the 1500s, during the Age of Exploration, it colonized the Americas and was so powerful that it challenged England with an armada; but there was an earlier one, during the Medieval period when Spain was conquered by tolerant Arabs and became a cosmopolitan world center where Muslim, Christian, and Jew mingled and prospered. This album features musical examples of the three cultures. Other albums from this label focus on each culture separately, including Sufi rites. Music was specialized for the synagogue, church, and mosque, for the palace and alcazar, and for the public square and garden. Some tunes became popular and covered by musicians for the three religions; jarchas songs were written in Hebrew and Arabic but sung in Castilian. The album begins with five tracks of Jewish songs: a shabat piece by Abraham ben Ezra (1089-1167), Sefardic melodies taken into the Exile, a poem by Yehuda Halevi (1070-1141), and a poem of Israel Najara of Safed, Israel, from the 1500s. Next are Christian examples for the pilgrimage on the Road of St. James, collected by Alfonso X the Wise (1221-1284). Three Islamic examples follow, including a work by al-Shustari (1212-1269). Period instruments are heard and include various drums and other percussion, a psaltery, hurdy-gurdy, nay, lute, oud, recorder, cittern guitar, and viol. I prefer the arrangements and musicianship in other albums in this series, but this album serves as a good introduction. Package notes in Spanish and English provide historic background, lyrics, and photographs. 56 minutes.
