Rubric: “The villancico that follow is the same [as the preceding], and the way it is played is by the singer singing without embellishment and the vihuela goes fast, and the “vuelta’ serves them both.” The last part of this rubric is to indicate that Milán has not made a new setting of the “vuelta” for this version, but that the vuelta from the previous version should be used with this one.
