has_evidence_text [The fisherman] was busy with his nets, and they chaffed him, I could see, about the strange lady who was running after him for his singing. So I had to wait about half an hour before he would be persuaded to sing... But at last he yielded and having once begun sang verse after verse, and I got it noted down. He sang it with a peculiar woodwind like quality of voice, which suggested a theme for orchestral treatment.
