Scholarly Commentary


The work remains anonymous to scholars; it appears to be a late thirteenth- or early fourteenth-century work. DGR's source text was Trucchi's Poesie Italiane inedite (II. 165), where it is said to be set for singing in three voices.

For further editorial information see the commentary for DGR's translation of the ballata.
