The Holy Grail has occupied a central place in Western life. It was believed by many to have been used by Christ at the Last Supper, and in the Middle Ages writers saw the Grail as a dish, or a chalice, or a precious stone. Songs and instrumental music celebrated it's mystical power and were composed by some of the greatest troubadours, mystics and singer-poets of the age: Christien de Troyes, Walther von der Vogelweide, Wolfram von Eschenbach, and Hildegard of Bingen. This disc uniquely focuses on the common threads between Grail literature and music. Founded in 2002 for the study and revival of early music, the Capilla Antigua de Chinchilla is directed by it's founder, the tenor Jose Ferrero. The ensemble has participated in festivals and concerts throughout Spain, including the Hellen Early Music Festival, the 2006 and 2007 Festivals of the Early Music of Chinchilla, and the 2008 Musical October of Carthage in Tunisia.
