I loved this, Ivar. As I was listening to you I downloaded the app and love it. Can't wait to get back to Santiago to check it out in person. See on the next Zoom. Hope there will be one this Tuesday.

A tip of the hat to Fundación Barrié which paid for all this, this is wonderful. The section on the instruments played by the 24 elders depicted in the archivolt is especially great - we can hear each of the reproduced instruments being played.

My only regret is that, as far as I can tell, you can't hear them being played together. That way, when people arrive there, they could just tap their app and... ta-da!...the pórtico would play for them as they approach. Maybe some wealthy patron could finance a competition for 12th century-style compositions for the Pórtico de la Gloria ensemble?

Thanks for the links Ivar!
