I have recently heard from someone who knew Master Ivar Battleskald well-
probably still does, as my facts are often suspect when it comes to people...
When he first learned of a taped version of the song, he was livid. He really
does intend it to be passed on by oral tradition only - in the strictest sense.
I do not know what his opinion of telephone would be. If you are in Atlantia,
it was not hard at all 4 years ago to find someone who could sing it - I would
imagine any of the MSOB's could point you at someone who knows it.
My understanding was that the posting came from the King of Ansteorra, which I
also believe to be the home of Master Battleskald. I have replied privately to
the original poster with this information.
All of this is the result of _my_ looking for the name of the original author and
trying to determine his wishes, as well as what I should do with the 3 tapes I
have with the song on them - I simply do not pass them on anymore.
Who wishes he was home in Atlantia where events normally include some
kind of camping and _plenty_ of bardic!
