|Lou Yue 1||樓鑰|
Lou Yue (1137 - 1213), from an illustrious family on the upper reaches of the Qiantang River (which flows through Hangzhou), rose to a high official position in the Southern Song dynasty. After his death his writings were compiled into 攻媿集 Gongkui Ji in 120 folios, of which 112 are extant. This includes a travelogue of a trip he made to what is now Beijing, as well as an article on the melody Guangling San.
Wang Shixiang, in his article on Guangling San, discusses what we know of a version of Guangling San played by Lou Yue, based on Lou Yue's poem on the subject.4 He apparently learned it from Lu Zijia.3 It is mentioned together with one described by Zhang Chong.5

張崇 Zhang Chong
Wang Shixiang's foldout chart, #4, outlines a version of Guangling San performed by 張研一 Zhang Yanyi, as described by Zhang Chong during 大定 Dading period of the 晉 Jin dynasty (1161-89; capital in Beijing). A note says the tablature is lost, but it quotes a preface. Wang first mentioned him as Song dynasty; Bio/1237 has a Zhang Chong only in the 5 Dynasties period. The story apparently came from Yelü Chucai: see Rao, Section 3.
