Cancionero de Upsala

Cancionero de Upsala - Cancionero del Duque de Calabria).
Villancios de diversos autores a dos, y a tres, y a quatro, y a cinco bozes, agora neuvamente corregidos.
Ay mas ocho tonos de Canto Ilano y ocho tonos de Canto de Oregano para que peudan Aprovechar los que A cantar commercaren.

The songbook of the Duke of Calabria. Printed in Venice 1556, The only known original print is filed in Carolina Rediviva (Uppsala University Library), and was highlighted by Rafael Mitjana y Gordon in 1904. It is suggested to be a war booty when the Swedish army plundered Prague in 1631 or 1648.

Together with Cancionero Musical del Palacio and Cancionero de Medinaceli, Canconnero de Upsala speaks of musical riches of the Spanish Renaissance. But while the first two contain a varity of song and instrumental compositions, the Upsala collection is alone in presenting only villancicos. The word "villancico" is derived from the Spanish word "villa", as in village, and was originally a folksong from Medieval towns, "refined" during the Renaisance. This folk source can often be seen in the simple verse form - A-B-B-A - and in its demonstrable roots in Arabic metre, Thus, the Cancionero can be seen to contain both popular and chivalric traditions.

The poems take up subjects that are still and always near and dear to our imagination, including love and death, the Virgin Mary and Child Jesus, sorrow and physical love.

The compositions could be divided into:
  • Secular villancicos
    • 12 with 2 voices
    • 12 with 3 voices
    • 12 with 4 voices
    • 6 with 5 voices
  • Christmas villancicos
    • 10 with 4 voices
    • 2 with 3 voices
  • 8 Instrumental duets or songs for organ
  • 8 Gregorian melodies - at the end of the book - for warm up?
  • 3 Catalan language
  • 3 Catalan language with a Gascogne dialect
  • 2 Portuguese language from Galicia
  • 62 Castilian Spanish
