The Red Book, LlibreVermell, is a codex of pilgrim and liturgical music for the monastery of Montserrat, which sits on a mountain peak near Barcelona,  a pilgrim destination that  brought travelers from far away. The music was written specifically for this place, so unusual, we’ll also here some Trouvere songs and Cantigas de Santa Maria.

CD title: The Black Madonna, Pilgrim Songs from the Monastery of Montserrat (1400-1420)

Performer: Ensemble Unicorn
CD label: NAXOS 554256
