4 Sacred Villanescas

with preceding texts, Spanish / English

Francisco Guerrero / Arthur Sjögren
Choral Score - Mixed Choir


Francisco Guerrero was the most widely published Spanish composer of the 16th Century, and his output of sacred music contains many fine examples of the villanesca, a vernacular Spanish motet. In a rare incursion of the vernacular into the traditional Roman Catholic rite, such pieces were commonly used in Spanish churches duringcommunion and on special feast days. Canciones y villanescas espirituales, from which the pieces in the present compilation have been selected, was published in Venice in 1589.
