Ar ne kuth ich sorghe non 'The Prisoner's Song'
EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
Ar ne kuth ich sorghe non is also known as The Prisoner’s Song. The handwriting and various linguistic features of the text fit with the first half of the thirteenth century and the south of England, most probably London or Essex. The story, though, is timeless—the singer has been wrongfully convicted and prays for release.
