The Cancionero de la Colombina or Cancionero Musical de la Colombina (CMC) is a Spanish manuscript containing Renaissance music from the end of the 15th century.

The manuscript was copied during the reign of the Catholic Kings, possibly between the decades of 1460s to the 1480s. It therefore predates the more famous Cancionero de Palacio. Its authorship is attributed to a single copyist, but the musical center he might have belonged to is uncertain. It originally comprised 107 folios, 17 of which are lost. Besides that, its general condition is unsatisfactory.

In 1534 it was bought by the second son of Christopher Columbus, the bibliophile Fernando Colón, who added it to his rich Sevillian library of more than 15,000 volumes known by the name of "Columbine Library" (in Spanish, "Biblioteca de la Colombina"). After his death, the Library was transferred to the Seville Cathedral, where it still is today.

Publication date and place: 1460 –1490 – Manuscript.

The Cancionero currently contains 95 musical settings, some of which are incomplete. Of this total, 53 remain anonymous. The composers of many of the works could be identified because their compositions were also found in other cancioneros, especially the Cancionero de Palacio and the Cancionero de Montecassino.

The repertory in the manuscript is varied. Among the musical genres represented one can find canciones, villancicos, romances and ensaladas. Many of the villancicos and canciones are sacred, mostly Marian. Two of the works are in French and 12 are liturgical compositions in Latin. One can also find two short versions in Castillian of the Song of the Sibyl ("Canto de la Sibila"), nos. 73 and 91: "Juysio fuerte será dado".
