Da Tempera Velha

Anno 1870. A codex containing unknown Spanish music is found in a corner of the library of the royal palace in Madrid. Twenty years later: the songs from the Cancionero de Palacio are published for the first time and prove to be the cornerstone of Iberian music history. Da Tempera Velha breathes life into these compositions which, despite their originality, prove to be truly a product of their time.

About the performers

Da tempera velha is an ensemble dedicated to the performance of historical repertories. Their interest lies in connecting a given repertoire with its wider cultural and historical context, by attempting to transcend common places with the hope of revealing new possible insights. They also aim to question contemporary, rather fix ideas of national tastes and styles, by focusing on the inherently international, collaborative nature of the musical sources and practices of the past. Their first CD, The Palacio Songbook was released by Glossa in September 2023, to great critical success.
