“For whom are sweet songs set to music?” Women as performers of and listeners to the cancionero repertory

Little is known about the performance context for the repertory of the fifteenth-century Spanish songbooks or cancioneros, and the musical and poetic sources apparently provide little information as regards how they were performed, in what contexts and who was listening. Today the songs are most often performed with a panoply of instruments, including a percussion section, in colorful and vibrant versions that hold enormous appeal for modern audiences.
