A lecture-concert

In the Pórtico de la Gloria, the Western entrance to the Cathedral, music is granted a relevant position due to the instruments played by the 24 kings chiseled on the arch above the main door. They are one of the oldest stoney representations of musical instruments in Europe and they are so precise that they give us much information about the way they were built and played.

Also the Codex Calixtinus, that medieval manuscript created as an ideological fundament for the Camino, is important for many reasons; one of them is the music copied in it, as it contains, among other pieces, the oldest polyfony of the Western Middle Ages, that ist the oldest witnes of a musical revolution with significant consequences.

At SON do CAMIÑO we have brought together three musicians, one of which has rebuilt in woold the instruments of the Pórtico. They will take you on a journey in time in which you will learn through pictures and explanations why the Pórtico instruments are so important, and you will be able to see the instruments in wood and listen to the music of the 12th and 13th centuries. That music which master Mateo, the artist of the medieval cathedral, considered relevant enough for the worship of the Apostle to be placed in prominent position in his work. And you, pilgrim, will now be able to listen to the music that received ancient pilgrims. And the next time you see the Pórtico you will have the privilege to hear in your mind how those instruments sounded.
