Commentary: Notes from Snow 1977, no. 185: "Other vols followed in 1958 and 1964 (see entries for those years). The five opening chapters set forth, in minute detail and with scrupulous bibliographical procedure, the work done on the music of the CSM up to the author's time. Chap. 1 is a diary like account of the evolution of A.'s own involvement in this not inconsiderable task. The discussion of musical notation systems is particularly valuable because it is approached historically and comparatively. Also included are an index of first lines, and a thematic index of the melodies. This volume and its later companions irreversibly established the foundation of all future study of the music of the CSM and even of that of the troubadours and trouvères."
