Cantiga 3

My lovely sister, come with me
To the church in Vigo where the sea is rough,
And we will gaze at the waves.

My lovely sister, come eagerly
To the church in Vigo, where the sea is up,
And we will gaze at the waves.
 
To the church in Vigo where the sea is rough,
And my mother and my boyfriend will come,
And we will gaze at the waves.

To the church in Vigo, where the sea is up,
And my mother and my darling will come,
And we will gaze at the waves.
 
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.
