Like the poetry of the troubadours and trouvères, the Gallego-Portuguese lyric includes several distinct genres, one of which is the cantiga de amigo. There are nearly 400 surviving poems in this genre, only six of which – cantigas by Martin Codax – have come down to us with their music. The ensemble Fin’Amor presents a richly instrumented interpretation of these rare examples of Gallego-Portuguese lyric.
