Commentary: Snow 2007: "The cancioneiros contain many 'cantigas de romaria' with no mention of specific liturgical feast; however, other cantigas often hint at annual festivals celebrating Christmas, Spring, Easter, etc. In this survey, many Alfonsine compositions lend support to the author's hints that these 'festas do tempo' are deserving of further study: Christmas (CSM 425, 73, 72, and 292); Easter (Lapa 14, CSM 114, 4, 208, 224, 235, 295, and Lapa 19); the Maias (CSM 406); and the liturgical cycle (see author's pp. 6-7) of the Festas de Santa Maria and the Festas de Jesu-Cristo, of which there is plentiful evidence in the CSM."
