RE: The moment when a flamenco guita... (in reply to kitarist


Hmm, rereading it all now the author could also have meant the entire Andalucian cante jondo, not just the religious subset - i.e. an even more general claim about any Andalucian song of 'tremulous lament'.

Yes exactly, cante jondo as I first said the excerpt read as a reference to. No need to look for Roman sources about something that is simply wrong to begin with.

RE: The moment when a flamenco guita... (in reply to Brendan


You’re both working on the assumption that Crow’s prose is the expression of precise thought, which seems to me unwarranted.

Yes, the thought had occurred to me Going back to the D.Mus. thesis, it seems an awfully small nail to hang a hat of a claim on.

Nevertheless, the comment about Roman writers and songs of tremulous lament must have been based on something as it is too pointed. Being in general interested in language and the broken-telephone process of humans interpreting and retransmitting what they picked up from one another, I wanted to find out what was actually written (the primary source).
