Misc. Comments

Although Beck called this a "comedy opera" in his reconstruction and harmonization, the original was somewhat loosely connected to the "pastourelle", a poetic form that concerned the romance of a shepherdess. Neither "operas" nor "pastorales" really is an accurate genre for the original 13th-century work.
