Subject: RE: Pronunciation of Gaelic/Norn in 'King Orfeo'
There is a text in The Oxford Book of Ballads (ed. Quiller Couch 1910 rpt 1932), item 15, pp. 62-3. There is a recording on Archie Fisher's CD Orfeo of a longer reconstructed version; the notes cite a recording made for the EFDSS of a singer from Unst named John Stickle, recorded by Pat Shuldam-Shaw.
