Commentary: Snow 2007: "A clear and sometimes bitter exposition of how often Ribera's 1922 volume on the CSM and its links to Arabic music is incorrect. Almost all of R.'s statements are held up to the light of critical analysis and found wanting. Perhaps the grossest error, according to this author, is R.'s rejection of ditonality in the CSM in favor of a non-existent chromatic scheme. Musicologists might take pleasure in this item but it is hard on others. Anglés [1926, p. 6, n. 5], while agreeing with the findings, generally, does encounter inexactitudes. See also Garnelo [1925]."
