Commentary: Snow 1977, no. 31 tris: "Interested by Wolf's description (1859) of these newly uncovered poems, V. had a transcription made of a Madrid copy and checked it against MS Vatican 4803. The 34 pages of "noticia crítica" never had much critical value: however, they reveal the story of how a selection of CV first found its way into print (better and more reliable editions were soon to follow; see Monaci [1875] and Braga [1878]). V. states there are 21 Alfonsine compositions but has miscounted: there are 19 plus one shared tensón. The two cantigas profanas of Alfonso made available (pp. cxxx cxxxiv) are CV 79 and 77 (in his edition, numbers XLVIII and XLIX)."
