Resonet - Early music

 
 

     RESONET was formed in Santiago de Compostela in 1990 by the lute player Fernando Reyes, who conducts the group, and the soprano Mercedes Hernández, taking its name from a piece in the Codex Calixtinus.


    Its members have received specialised training in the performance of early music in Europe’s best-known schools: Schola Cantorum Basiliensis (Basel, Switzerland), Musikhochschule Trossingen (Germany), Conservatoire de Toulouse (France)...


    The group has performed numerous concerts in leading festivals and auditoria throughout Europe, focusing on music connected with Galicia and the Way of St. James. It has recorded “La Grande Chanson”: French pilgrims’ songs from the seventeenth century; “¡Santiago!”: music and pilgrimages in the Renaissance; “Les Pellerines”: the fashion of pilgrimage in seventeenth-century in France; “Il Pellegrino”: the journey of Cosimo III de Medici,1668; “Canto de Nadal”; “Cantares Galegos-Rosalía de Castro” and “Canto de Ultreia” et “Festa Dies: Consectration of the Cathedral of Santiago de Compostels, 1211”, both with Codex Calixtinus and Pilgrim’s songs.

   

  Resonet collabores with the “Departamento de Educación” (Department for Education) of  the town of Santiago de Compostela and the “Museo de las Peregrinaciones y de Santiago”.
