Rosafresca with vocalist Hayley Guest, explore the golden age of art and culture in Spain through the Palace Songbook. Dating from about 1520, this magnificent collection of over 400 songs is one of the great legacies of Queen Isabella’s support of the arts and music. The collection features the villancico, or rustic dance-song that would have been commonplace at village festivities, though later developed and refined by court composers of the time. The songs express themes of interest to the Spanish people – from the political, religious and pastoral to the amorous and bawdy.
