The Lute Online Resources Portal (LORP): Orpharion

 

ORPHARION

The orpharion was essentially a distinctively shaped wire-strung lute, and during the historically short period of its use, its repertoire must have been essentially the same as that of the lute. However, a number of printed are sources specifically designate its use, generally as an alternative to the lute.

A list of such sources can be found at The Lute Library: www.lutelibrary.com/print-sources/instrument/wire#orpharion
