There's a 15th c. manuscript that is more or less notation kind of
similar to the notation in the Burgundian sources.  Sans music, if I
recall, and not very long (2 pages, I think).

There's also a 17th c. Spanish source by a guy named Navarro.  I don't
recall details...

And, of course, there could be sources I don't know about. :-)
