Title: A siolos molenos
Composer: Gabriel Garcia de Mendoza
Description: A Christmas "villancico de negros". The text is obscure and unclear in places, although the general theme is focused on admiration of the Christ child in the manger. This is one of a large number of "villancicos de negros" or "negrillas" in manuscript in the Música Colonial Archive. They are mostly (i) by obscure composers and (ii) in illegible microfilmed manuscripts, this one being an exception to (ii).
