more languages

Two new ones came up -- the ''Montpellier Codex'' has one motet in Provençal, and Andrews' ''Jennie! with her Bonnie Blue E'e''. Different enough to not classify as French and English respectively?

Scottish Gaelic might be what is needed for the one. The ISO table doesn't list Provençal as a language, unlike Occitan (which is what the Songs of the Auvergne are in) unless Provençal is known as something else that I'm not aware of. If it has no ISO code, I think we will have to go with French. So the question is -- is it also known as something else that does have a code?

"Jennie" is English with a Scottish accent, and definitely not the very different language of Scots Gaelic :)

It appears that "Provençal" is a dialect of the Occitan language (see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Occitan), with the ISO code "oc", which we could use for the language tag.
