bassen Two Sisters, a' Bhean Eudach, Horpa (18) RE: Two Sisters, a' Bhean Eudach, Horpa 27 Apr 99

Horpa or dei tvo systar - the two sisters - is one of the most well known of the traditional folk songs in Norway, collected in variants and fragments all over the country. This is definitely not my field, but if there aren't any norwegian folklorists or traditional folksingers lurking around in the 'cat, I'll be happy to get you the 50 verses that can be found in the standard anthology! My source books indicate roots as far back a an egyptian folk tale from the 14. century BC.
