Cantiga 1

Waves of the sea of Vigo
Have you seen my boyfriend?
And oh God, will he come soon?

Waves of the swollen sea,
Have you seen my darling?
And oh God, will he come soon?
 
Have you seen my boyfriend,
Whom I am sighing for?
And oh God, will he come soon?

Have you seen my darling,
For whom I feel deep anguish?
And oh God, will he come soon?
 
Martin Codax, Latter half of the 13th century
 
Listen to the soprano Speranza Cerullo singing the Cantigas by Martin Codax, in Pieve di San Martino church, Sesto Fiorentino, Florence, just as they were composed.
