A villancico from the magnificent Cancionero de Palacio manuscript, put together in the court of Ferdinand and Isabella circa 1505-1520. The author is anonymous.

Al alva venid, buen amigo,
Al alva venid.

Amigo el que yo mas queria,
venid al alva del dia.

Amigo el que yo mas amaba,
venid a la luz del alva.

Venid a la luz del dia,
non trayays compagna.

Come at dawn, good friend,
come at dawn.

Friend whom I most desired,
come at the dawn of day.

Friend whom I most loved,
come at the light of dawn.

Come at the light of day,
and bring no-one with you.
