Abstract: When Godfrey Wettinger and Michael Fsadni O.P. discovered Pietro Caxaro's Cantilena on the 22nd September 1966 they not only discovered the earliest known poem in Maltese but the most intriguing one as well. After 33 years scholars are still battling with its linguistic, metric and semantic obscurities, each one naturally examining it from his own viewpoint (Montebello lists no fewer than 52 titles which appeared up to 1990 in his bibliography on pages 57-61). This is as it should be, but I can't help expressing my disappointment that my emendatio, published in the Journal of Maltese Studies, n. 16 in 1986 was met with a certain reluctance, except for Cassola and Montebello?
