PAN 13.014, 4-Gehema, fol. 5v
Mathias Rösel has communicated on 2 October 2010, that the title written over this song must not be read “Ich weiß vor unaussprechliche pein” but “Ach waß vor vnausprechlich pein”. Grimmelshausen mentions the song (Trutz Simplex, 1670, chapter 16, p. 150) and informs his reader that it was called The Dappled (“der Scheck genannt”).
Eberhard Nehlsen, who has conducted extensive research into song broadsheets, has kindly informed us that the lute piece is the only extant source for the music of this song.
