Negri's "squares for four" such as Lo Spagnoletto and Villanicco, are thought to be Spanish, based on their similarities to later Spanish dances.  He was working in Milan, which was a Spanish-controlled area at the time, and it is obvious from the names of people he dedicated his dances to, that he was writing for Spanish nobility.
So his work may be indicative of Spanish tastes in dance.  Or not...

Has anything been published in English, or taught in the SCA, about
period-ish dances in Spain, or Iberia in general?  The only one
related that I know of is "Quen quer que", and while the tune is
period Iberian, the arrangement was devised by Master Sean Andreas in
the Middle.
