General information

Title: Villancicos de diuersos Autores, a dos, y a tres, y a quatro, y a cinco bozes, agora nvevamente corregidos. Ay mas ocho tonos de Canto llano, y ocho tonos de Canto de Organo para que puedam aprouechar los que, A cantar començaren. Venetiis, Apud Hieronymum Scotum, MDLVI

Translated title: Villancicos from various authors, for 2, and 3, and 4, and 5 voices, now again revised. There are also 8 tones of plainchants, and 8 tones of organum for the benefit of those that are still learning to sing. Venice, by Geronimo Scotto, 1556

Publication date and place: 1556 by Girolamo Scotto in Venice.
Description: The Cancionero de Upsala, also known by the titles Cancionero del Duque de Calabria and Cancionero de Venecia, is a volume of mostly anonymous Spanish music printed in Venice in 1556. It survives in a unique copy at the Uppsala University Library and was edited in 1909 by Rafael Mitjana; the subsequent literature has mostly adopted his spelling "Upsala" [sic]. A facsimile was published by Alamire (Peer, Belgium 1984) and a scan is available at IMSLP. The manuscript contains 70 pieces in total:

  • 54 villancicos, listed below
  • 16 works for one and two voices: 8 tonos in plainchantLink to the English Wikipedia article and 8 tonos in organumLink to the English Wikipedia article. In both cases, works are sorted from the first to the eighth tone, and have an educational purpose, as suggested in the original title.

A quote from Stevenson 1995:

Querol Rosso's prize-winning thesis, La poesia del Cancionero de Upsala, became the basis for his "estudio introductorio sobre la poesia y la tecnica musical" that prefaces Mitjanas transcription of the fifty-four songs -- only one of which bears a composer attribution in the 1556 imprint (Nicolas Gombert, no. 49), the others all lacking ascriptions. Concordances permitted his attributing the music of nos. 7 and 10 to Juan del Encina; 26, 35, and 36 to Mateo Flecha; 23 to Carceres; 34 to Juan Aldomar; and of considering as possible composers Mateo Flecha of nos. 33, 45, 46, 51, and 52; Juan Vasquez of nos. 29, 32, and 50; Cristobal de Morales of no. 13; and Encina additionally of no. 25.

All works are in Spanish except nos. 17, 18, 29 & 39 (Catalan) and no. 48 (Galician-Portuguese). Verbum caro has a macaronic refrain.
