Recent... Aurelio Aureli's libretto for the opera Eliogabalo music by Francesco Cavalli, 1667. (The recording of the 2004 performance directed by René Jacobs is available at )  Really groovy and bent opera!  Click here for Aureli's libretto.

Less recent... Ka orang Iban ti nitih pengarap Kristyen, bup "Jalai Ngator Pendiau."

Indai Sam ngasoh aku ngesekan bup tu lalu ngengkah nya ke Jala ka pangan iya.  Bup tu lama, di-tulis, kenu aku, sebedau Perang Jepun tauka enda lama lepas nya, lalu mar amat di-temu diatu.  Fail nya dalam pisin PDF lalu besai, kira 17MB.
