	I found the following quote while reading "Santiago De Compostela 
In the Age of the Great Pilgrimages" by Marilyn Stokstad.  The quote is 
from a sermon by Pope Calixtus in the 12th Century describing the sights 
that could be seen at the Cathedral of Santiago.  

... Some play citherns, others lyres, others dulcimers, others flutes, 
recorders, trumpets, harps, viols, British or Welsh wheels; some sing 
with cithirns; others sing accompanied by various instruments; ....

	Can anyone tell me what British or Welsh wheels are?
