Eya presents Pilgrimage (excerpts)

Eya follows the humming routes of the Camino de Santiago as well as the path towards the mountaintop monastery of Montserrat with music of medieval Spain from the Codex Calixtinus, Las Huelgas Codex, and the Llibre Vermell. Interspersed throughout the program are the liturgical songs of Hildegard von Bingen devoted to St. Ursula and the 11,000 virgins, martyred along their doomed spiritual journey.

This interweaving of musical styles outlines and explores the progression of body, mind, and spirit along the well-worn and sometimes turbulent path of the pilgrim.
