Villancico II

Type:  

Structure, Metrical Requirement, Repetitive Requirement, Rhyme Scheme Requirement

 
Description: 

A lyrical form that could possibly be the Spanish version of the Madrigal. Bob Newman has attempted to catalogue this from some examples in the wild. It looks as if he found one example and figured that was how they are supposed to work. This is a much stricter definition that the general definition of the form. It’s good though!

Mr. Newman’s definition has a work in three strophes of seven, six and eight lines respectively. The last two lines of the first two strophes are refrains that are repeated at the end of the third strophe. See the schematic for the rest of the information.
