The road to Santiago de Compostela in northern Spain has been trodden by pilgrims from the Middle Ages to the present day, inspiring deeply spiritual outpourings of music. St. Martin’s concentrates on the Medieval and Renaissance Spanish music of this tradition, including from the 12th century Codex Calixtinus.
Generously sponsored by Gene and Rosann McCullough in honor of the Colorado Front Range Chapter of American Pilgrims on the Camino

Long retired from a career in physiology research, Gene (and his wife, Rosann) McCullough discovered the Camino in 2000 and has since walked on various routes five times. He has served as a volunteer host in pilgrims hostels eight times. In addition, he is one of the coordinators of the Colorado Front Range Chapter of American Pilgrims on the Camino, the U.S. Camino association. He is the webmaster of American Pilgrims. Gene served on St. Martin’s Board of Directors for seven years and is thrilled to have these two important aspects of his life come together in this rare performance!
Today, many people have at least heard of the Camino de Santiago, the medieval pilgrimage route that culminates at the (reputed) tomb of St. James the Greater (Santiago in Spanish) in the cathedral in Santiago de Compostela, Galicia, Spain. What many may not know is that the Camino holds an important place in the history of early music, a history that comes down to us today in the physical form of an illustrated manuscript or codex, the Codex Calixtinus, housed in that cathedral. Gene will present an overview of the history of the Camino and its modern day manifestation, the Codex Calixtinus and then Maestro Krueger’s musical selections.
