Thanks, plep. What a treasure trove. There was a time, about 20 years ago, when I could actually read the notation on those music pages. Use it or lose it, I guess.

MIDI files of the cantigas (as usual with MIDI files, they'll probably do more for you if you've heard the music live or on a conventional recording first)
