At the end of the Princeps Codex of the Cantigas de Santa María we can find a rubric called Cantigas para as festas do anno. This Codex is one of the most important musical sources of 13th century vernacular repertoire. This rubric introduces a group of cantigas, composed for particular and fixed festivities of the liturgical calendar. Cantaderas has chosen some of them to create a dialogue between these cantigas and pieces from the oral tradition, primarily from the Northeast of the Iberian Peninsula. highlighting the connection between the two calendars, which ordered life in the rural world from the medieval ages to the last century.
