Come pod'a groriosa sung by Chanticleer
Composed by Alfonso X, King of Castile (1252-1284)
The repeated verse translates to- "Just as the Glorious One can cause the dead to live, so can She straighten the limbs of cripples"
Thank you to Dr Stephen Parkinson for help with the stanza by stanza translation of the Gallo-Portuguese of the Cantigas de Santa Maria!
