Literary and Musicological notes.
According to Burkhard Kippenberg in Grove Music Online (2004), some 61 strophes survive with ascribptions, of which about 15 were previously considerd inauthentic... None survives with music ...

Part I lists Hendrik van Veldeke's works, known by contrafactum, then in alphabetical order of label:
Part I lists only original releases.

Part II lists recordings in part I, but re-edited from LP or tape to CD, or the most recent release of those originally issued on CD; this list includes also those released only on cassettes or video.
When no number precedes the entry, it means that the CD or tape contains only composite sections or is an anthology of a CD or tape already listed in Part II.

Part III lists any recordings newly or soon to be released.
