Notes & Reviews:

Galicia, second half of the 13th century: the sadness of a young woman staring at the sea while awaiting the return of her beloved... Beautiful, atmospheric and infinitely delicate, the songs of Martn Codax remain among the finest examples of cantigas de amigo. Influenced by the poetry of the troubadours, infused with Christian, Arab and Celtic symbolism, the songs of Martn Codax nonetheless belong to the Galician- Portuguese world, and totally so. Even today, the desperately sad fado, the Portuguese national song-form, maintains the rhythm of waves and tides and feels like the lament of a woman who looks out to sea and wonders when her beloved will return to her. Singing to the viol, VivaBiancaLuna Biffi gives voice to the human feeling, whilst Pierre Hamon provides evocative interludes on his unparalleled mediaeval flutes, making the waves become sounds, emotions, and words beyond words...

American Record Guide, March/April 2016
I can assure you, that this is an evocative performance. Biffi either sings a cappella or accompanies herself on a vielle like a medieval singing-songwriter. The preludes and interludes, improvised by Biffi and Hamon (using different types of medieval or folk flutes) build on the motives of the songs themselves, further integrating the whole recording. I do recommend Biffi and Hamon if you can allow yourself the extra time to be enveloped in these melancholy lyrics. The booklet for this new release includes a very informative note on the songs by Anna Laura Perugini and complete texts and translation.
