These five anonymous villancicos from the famous Cancionero de Palacio (Madrid, Royal Palace) are in a variety of styles. Strictly speaking, no. 4, Deh! fosse la qui meco is not a villancico at all, but a frottola (it appears as such in Petruccis Frottole Libro Sesto) -- however, the two forms are quite similar, and the Palace Manuscript contains other adapted frottole. In fact, Zagaleja del casar is rhythmically similar to a common frottola type, as well as having a text that breaks into Italian. A los banos del amor makes very effective use of a simple device: a four-note figure in the tenor part, which relates to the second line of text (Sola me ire = So La Mi Re = G A E D). These pieces can be performed by a solo singer with instruments (preferably at 8-foot pitch) or purely instrumetally. Nos 3 and 4 can also be done purely vocally. - BT CONTENTS: Zagaleja del casar Tristeza, quien a mi vos dio Entra Mayo Deh! fosse la qui meco A los baiios del amor.
