The Red Book, Llibre Vermell, 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.
