Studying their embedded stellar populations can provide an excellent laboratory to test theories of triggered star formation and the features that it may imprint on the stellar aggregates resulting from it. We studied the globule IRAS 20319+3958 in Cygnus X by means of visible and near-infrared imaging and spectroscopy, complemented with mid-infrared Spitzer/IRAC imaging, in order to obtain a census of its stellar content and the nature of its embedded sources. Our observations show that the globule contains an embedded aggregate of about 30 very young (≲1Myr) stellar objects, for which we estimate a total mass of ∼90M. The most massive members are three systems containing early B-type stars. Two of them most likely produced very compact HII regions, one of them being still highly embedded and coinciding with a peak seen in emission lines characterising the photon dominated region (PDR). Two of these three systems are resolved binaries, and one of those contains a visible Herbig Be star. An approximate derivation of the mass function of the members of the aggregate gives hints of a slope at high masses shallower than the classical Salpeter slope, and a peak of the mass distribution at a mass higher than that at which the widely adopted log-normal initial mass function peaks. The emission distribution of H2 and Brackett gamma, tracing the PDR and the ionised gas phase, respectively, suggests that molecular gas is distributed as a shell around the embedded aggregate, filled with centrally-condensed ionised gas. Both, the morphology and the low excitation of the HII region, indicate that the sources of ionisation are the B stars of the embedded aggregate, rather than the external UV field caused by the O stars of Cygnus OB2. The youth of the embedded cluster, combined with the isolation of the globule, suggests that star formation in the globule was triggered by the passage of the ionisation front. Description: Table 3 contains positions and photometry in V, R, I, J, H, Ks, [3.6], [4.5], [5.8] and [8.0] of 144 YSO candidates around the globule IRAS 20319+3958. The VRI magnitudes and their errors are obtained with CAMELOT/IAC80 (Tenerife), the JHKs magnitudes and their errors are obtained with Omega2000/3.5m CAHA telescope (Calar Alto observatory), except for a few very bright and/or unresolved sources for which NOTCam/NOT (La Palma) is used. The IRAC/Spitzer magnitudes and errors are also given. The third last column gives a flag that shows either the YSO class or the YSO selection method. The naming used in the paper for the three brightest sources in the globule (A, B and C), of which two are binaries, are given in the second last column. The last column gives a photometry flag.
