These Spanish court songbooks cover an astonishing variety of styles, idioms and origins, and range from chivalrous ballades and high-end art music to the rustic and downright lewd. Works by Spanish composers such as de la Torre, Enrique and Encina rub shoulders with some of the most widely distributed and best-loved repertoire of the age by van Ghizeghem, Josquin, Agricola, and Morton.
