That's _Ecclesiatic Pomp and Aristocratic Circumstance_. Right words, wrong order! Anyway, a cursory glance last night revealed that she's got Spanish (and likely Moorish) examples and patterns, but nothing else that you would consider "Middle Eastern". Peter Collingwood, in _Techniques of Tabalet Weaving_ has the occasional reference to Middle Eastern equipment or techniques, but they aren't necessarily period. If you turn up something else in your research, please be sure to share!
