Bicinia and Love Villancicos in the Uppsala Songbook. Villancicos (songs) by various composers for two, three, four, and five voices, now freshly revised…” (Venice, 1556) – this is the name under which the Duke of Calabria’s Songbook (or the Uppsala Songbook) was printed. The selection of villancicos it contains is grouped under three themes: popular songs and pastoral songs; Christmas carols, and love songs. In this album, we can listen to a selection from this songbook of works for two and three voices, some of them instrumental works under the title ‘Polyphonic song themes”, which are structured as exercises in composition around Gregorian techniques.
