Commentary: Notes from Snow 1977, no. 47: "Citing a contemporary biography of St Dunstan (d. 988) and contrasting it with the narration of CSM 288 and the Gil de Zamora account (Liber Mariae, tractatus VII), F. allows that the English account reached the latter via the intermediary chronicle of the monk of Montfroid, Hélinand (ca 1204). All texts are quoted. In addition, F. believes that there may be a source for cantiga 23 in the Dunstan biography as well."
