California Dissents Now Dr. M-infrcd Bukoizer, In a treatise published by the University of' California, casts doubt on the whole pleasant fable. Britls;i musicians are remarking somewli'.u bitterly that the California tendency is to assume that since men- sural notation did not appear on the European continent until laic in the !3th century, it could not possibly have shown up earlier in England. "English backwardness is notorious," was the sarcastic comment of critic Richard Capell. 'Meanwhile Dr. Egon Wellesz of Oxford has joined the local defenders on the ground that Bukuf- zer's theory of the song's late 13th ccntivy origin is "mcompatibic with the p:ilcO!;rapl)ical evidence."
