The Lute Online Resources Portal (LORP): 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:
