Let us praise Isidore
Who as our Lord
In the presence of the Saint
Blessed and lasting gift of God
Perfumes exhale their fragance
Joyful by the mercy of the Saint
Isidore was a Mozarabic farmer and layman, husband of the saint known in Spanish as Santa Maria de la Cabeza. He was born in about 1082 in Madrid, which was then a town in the Taifa or Muslim kingdom of Toledo, and he died in Christian Madrid in c.1170. Toledo and Madrid were conquered in 1085 by Alfonso VI of León (1047-1119). When an Almoravid king reconquered Madrid, Isidore took refuge in Torrelaguna where he married and lived for a time. He returned to Madrid in 1119 at the service of Ivan Vargas, working as a farm labourer in the fertile meadows of the Manzanares and Henares rivers. The people of Madrid and of many other places in Spain, Europe and America, have venerated his mortal remains ever since he died.

These six hymns constitute the prayer of a people who knew the merits and miracles of the saint they venerated by popular acclaim. Essentially, they praise his virtues and teachings: spiritual concerns over worldly matters by behaving not as a cleric, but as someone who shares his goods to help his fellow man. In recompense, he enjoyed divine help when angels and white oxen ploughed the fields with him; he fulfilled his duty as well as using his time to visit and pray at the nine churches of the city of Madrid. According to the Codex of John the Deacon, Saint Isidore was a simple farm labourer, a humble manual worker.
