The medieval church designated Mary as the mediatrix who could intercede with her son on behalf of humankind. The rise of her cult led to an outpouring of song as believers turned to her to arrange forgiveness and eternity in heaven. Songs for Mary appeared everywhere: grafted onto popular troubadour songs, inserted into preexisting liturgical music, and contributing to secular love songs. A program of Marian music is a true cross-section of medieval music and a window into the medieval heart.
