Vindel Parchment

Cantiga 5


Back

Whoever knows how to love a friend
Come with me to the sea at Vigo
And we’ll bathe in the waves.

Whoever knows how to love a boy
Come with me to the swollen sea,
And we’ll bathe in the waves.

Come with me to the sea at Vigo
And we will see my boyfriend,
And we’ll bathe in the waves.

Come with me to the swollen sea,
And we will see my sweetheart,
And we’ll bathe in 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.

Come with me to the sea at Vigo
And we’ll bathe in the waves.

Come with me to the swollen sea,
And we’ll bathe in the waves.

Come with me to the sea at Vigo
And we will see my boyfriend,
And we’ll bathe in the waves.

Come with me to the swollen sea,
And we will see my sweetheart,
And we’ll bathe in the waves.
