I've always been told that a) Master Ivar wrote the song and b) that 
he wanted it passed on as oral tradition, not written or recorded. 
(I'm a little surprised that the ban on copying/recording it has 
supposedly been lifted, and would not be surprised to learn that that 
was SCA legend or someone's wishful thinking, rather than Ivar's decision.)

That it was written in response to a group of Knights saying a Master 
at Arms couldn't understand fealty sounds plausible, but I've not 
heard that from Ivar (but then, it's been 20 or 30 years since I've 
seen him.) I've been told he's living in Calontir now, and since the 
original poster said she was moving to Calontir in the near future, 
maybe she can look him up and get the straight skinny from him.
