Commentary: Snow 1977, no. 271: "A brief and impressionistic account in which S. states that the CSM were popular songs and employed borrowed melodies. Records accompany the text and the cantiga used as recorded illustration is CSM 353. The author draws a deft, composite portrait of the famed courtesan, Maria Balteira, in which she attains a three-dimensionality almost unique among the treatments she receives from other critics."
