Thread Name: Origins: King Orfeo versions
Subject: RE: Origins: King Orfeo versions
Thanks to everyone so far. Let me restate what I want: I want information on the texts traditional and contemporary singers are using -- where did they get them? Did they make them up? I am interested in song notes on anybody's version that gives origins. Basically, I want to know if people are inventing "lost" verses, filling out the story from old manuscripts, or what. And I am interested in looking at the texts of any versions I have not seen.
