I just got my copy of this CD and am very impressed on listening to it. I have the Dufay Collective's _Miri it is_ and found that that recording occasionally lapsed into tiredness, as though not all of it was truly of interest to the performers. _Cancionero_ doesn't have that problem.
Since there is no track listing above, and you really don't want me typing in 31 tracks worth of Spanish titles (really...I have no Spanish spell check and would probably mess up half of them without realizing), I'll give a bit of description. This is the album that brings together all those 2 to 3-minute Spanish Renaissance pieces you've been hearing one at a time on other compilations. The ensemble tackles everything from sprightly dances to meditative pieces to love songs to odes to drinking, with aplomb, using a whole range of period instruments (sackbut, viol, vihuela, lute, vielle, rebec, flute, bombard, shawm, harp, etc.); this CD is about 70% instrumental. Despite a photo of a lovely tabor in the accompanying booklet, I never heard much percussion on this CD, which is slightly disappointing. Pieces with vocal performers include accompanied solos and choral pieces.
The instrumental stuff is energetic and never ponderous or heavy--these folks know their stuff when it comes to instruments. And the quality of the recording really shines during the instrumental pieces. Even playing this on the speakers that came with my computer, the sound is lovely.
A note for vocal/choral purists, I was not impressed with the quality of the voices, but don't let that scare you off from this CD. They are not obnoxiously bad; they just have the somewhat under-polished quality of excellent musicians who started on other instruments before paying any attention to their singing voices.

Verified Purchase
DuFay Collective are, in a word, brilliant, basically the Pink Martini of the music of the period. Their music never fails to transport you back in time. While the songs on this CD are somewhat more formal, they're basically designed to entertain the Spanish Court of the 15th and (early) 16th Centuries. As such, the evocative use of the guitar, and the excellent vocals and acoustics help transport the listener back to the courts of the Alcazar, overlooking olive trees and lush gardens. It's excellent background music, perfect for easy listening while working, or even during a massage. It's a highly recommended compilation that any medieval enthusiast should have in their CD case, as well as something any fan of "World Music" would wholeheartedly enjoy.
