Commentary: Snow 1977, no. 224: "The problems studied here, with great profit, include: Castilian influence at work in utilization of favoured narrative meters, esp. the octosyllable; predominance of Provençal traits in the loores (as distinct from the narrative cantigas; the influence of the zéjel on the rhyme scheme of the CSM; and problems the music creates for the form and construction of the texts when a melody exists first and the lyrics must be made to conform."
