I found out from Marc today what Gowron's speech is based on. He said it's a
translation of the "O for a Muse of fire" prologue from Henry V (
http://shakespeare.mit.edu/henryv/henryv.1.0.html). This sounds right since
the first line definably has the word <qul> in it.

If we are lucky, and it's not to hard for him to find, Marc said he would
look around and see if he can find the translation he did for it.

If I hear anything else I'll be sure to post it here.
