Commentary: Notes from Snow 1977, no. 83: "An advance over his study of metrics in Alfonso and Berceo (1903), for now H. more unhesitatingly concludes that the musical notation provides important rhythmic information for a correct interpretation of the individual cantigas. For the hendecasyllable as seen in, for example, CSM 17, both the grammatical and the musical accents tend to coincide in a dactylic form. H.'s expositions are not always clear to the layman, a fact compounded by the inexpert state of musicological studies of the CSM at this time. Schema are provided for: CSM 410, 290, 52, 339, 279, 126, 259, 39, 367, 133, 211, 139, 150, 69, 10, 143, 41, and 57. H. claims that these are all anticipated by occurrences in Latin hymnody."
