Commentary: Snow 2007: "Not much more than a presentation of the popular refrain in the medieval cancioneiros, a rough outline designed to encourage others to elaborate on these noted occurrences. Some use of the 'verbo antigo' is identified in Alfonso's poetry: the "Quen leva o baio, non leixa a sela" of CBN 473 and the "aquel é de mal guardado que guarda Santa Maria" of CSM 369. Other CSM touched on to advantage are 273, 329, 317, and 78."
