Cantiga 166 is also known as "Como Poden" (or "Como Poden Per Sas Culpas").

More info:

Quote :
Alfonso el Sabio (the Wise) was king of Castille and Leon during the 13th century. Despite his failings as a king, Alfonso ensured lasting recognition for his collection of "Cantigas de Santa Maria." The text of these works deals largely with miracles of the Virgin, but their sacred themes are often clothed in secular humour. In "Santa Maria Amar", Mary offers protection to a pregnant abbess, whilst in "Como poden per sas culpas" she heals a cripple, whose joyful dance is depicted rhythmically in the music.


Here is a "recent" interpretation of this canticle, just to compare it with the Poledouris version from Conan:

Here you'll hear a sample of the original cantiga (166) and find the original lyrics.

http://brassy.club.fr/PartMed/Cantigas/CSMIDI.html

and here, with voice, percussion and hurdy gurdy (push the angel below). There's also in french an illustrated story of that song.

It's amazing, this cantiga (even so dedicated to the Virgin) wasn't "too christian" for Milius.... Rolling Eyes Mr. Green

On the classic radio station here in New York, this song is often played, its quite nice.

Yeah! And it works pretty well in that sexual-morbid scene of the movie. The music without the christian chants is very sensual, which is amazing too when you think it's about the Virgin Razz

Yep, exactly, when you think about it, what could be more pagan and barbaric than naked girls and dark cults with an old christian hymn in musical background ! Laughing

Think they were sacrificing virgins rather than screwing them(like the Orgy chamber), but who knows.

Basil, I think liked the song and used it, perhaps maybe because it was popular locally. Cobb I read used local signs and intermixed them within the architecture and stuff. Gregorian chants seemed to have inspired Basil too obviously.

It's working for me too, but I just don't recognize the "Cantiga 166" when hearing it... study

Everyone, just go here:

[Link removed by Moderator because it contains copyrighted material]

You might need to download a torrent software (I got utorrent, which is free), to convert to MP3...but it's worth it. This is the complete soundtrack of the movie -- including the TEmple of Set music. All of it in sterling sound. It's a shame that track was never officially released, but at least this way you can hear all of the CtB music in good sound -- there are notes about the project on the above link, but to summarize, the unreleased stuff was taken directly from the DVD and manipulated via music software for CD-quality sound, removing all of the dialog/sound effects which cloud the music in the movie itself. This music is mixed together with the actual soundtrack CD release from '92 for the "ultimate" ctb soundtrack. Enjoy!

Hi - there's a Youtube video called "Conan The Barbarian (complete cd) Tower Of Set (unreleased)". It has some interesting info:

"This is an traditional track from Galicia and it is called "Cantiga 166" also known as "Como Poden (per sas culpas)". The version as heard in the movie is an original recording by "The Clememcic Consort" produced in 1976. Mr Poledouris only added the female choir to the existing recording. I think that's the reason why it is not on the Soundtrack Album. Copyright permission only for the movie and not for the Soundtrack Album."

I have left a message there asking if the person knows WHICH LP the original track is on. I mean, we want to have EVERYTHING, right?

These were the performers:

http://www.clemencic.at/en/frconsorteng.html

The LP appears to be this one:

Quote :
Las Cantigas de Santa Maria by Alfonso El Sabio, Rey de Castilia - 7 musicians.



Take a look at this beautiful page, with the lyrics for the cantiga and also an illustration:

http://cantigas.webcindario.com/cantigas/cantiga166/cantiga_166.htm

The song talks about how the man who are tortured by Sin and Guilt can be purified by the Virgin.

I guess in some paganic translation, it talks about how the sweet virgins can be elevated being devoured by Set. Mr. Green :doom:

This is the answer from the Youtube person:

Clememcic Resort Album "Troubadours e Cantigas de Santa Maria"

If we were REAL fans we would all form an international band, learn instruments, hire singers (all virgins) and perform this song. Then decapitate our host and burn the place down.

Any volunteers?
