From

For this New Sounds, listen to music inspired by El Camino, the ancient pilgrimage route to Santiago de Compostela in Spain, thought to be the final resting place of the Saint James. There’s music from the late Canadian violinist Oliver Schroer, who took the journey to “Finis Terra” (the end of the earth) on foot. He wrote pieces about it and took field recordings. 

Also, hear music by the English composer Joby Talbot from his work “Path of Miracles.”  He drove the route, but he had his 3-year old son with him.  Those works, and music from Spanish musician Luis Paniagua and the Biarritz-based male chorus Oldarra.
