Vecchie letrose is a villanscha. Willaert wrote fifteen of these kind of songs. Vecchie letrose is still very popular. Since it is very short, it is usually sung several times in succession, sometimes interspersed with instrumental versions. The text is spoken/sung by a lover who makes fun of the envious old women, under whose care the girl in love is placed.
