The Classic of Music

Apart from the five classic texts compiled by Confucius, tradition also speaks of a sixth Classic: The Classic of Music. One of the 305 songs originally contained in this work, which has been lost since 'The Burning of Books' has been rediscovered during an inventory of an old library in one of the Southern provinces. The claim to this marvelous discovery undoubtedly belongs partly to the Head Librarian, associated with the Eunuch faction, but two other candidates also claim to have had part in the discovery. Who do we credit?
Option A: The Province Governor.
