text, Thomas Forrest Kelly wrote a book "The Exultet in Southern Italy" New
York: Oxford Univ. Press, 1996. It was rather pricy, but it does have the
entire text--including the bee stuff.

Exsultet. I know that, of late, it has become something of a fad to let a
non-ordained individual (usually a Cantor) do it, but it is supposed to be
done by an ordained deacon or, in his absence, and ordained presbyter.
