Orac Music/Lyrics Pre 1500 (15) RE: Music/Lyrics Pre 1500 26 Apr 01

It has been suggested that the song "The three ravens" could be as early as 1450 although the earliest copy of it in print is 1611. The problem with very early songs is that with rare exceptions the music did not survive even if the words did. A lot tell stories, so it is not known whether they were actually sung or spoken with some instrumental accompaniment.
