John Keston, who is a trained singer, singing O Sole Mio, a Canzone Napoletana, or old Italian pop song :) A Riven Easter Egg, it was recorded after he simply burst into song during some downtime in the filming. The crew were so impressed, they asked him to do it again so they could record it.

I thought the story was that he burst into song and the cameras were still rolling, and they liked it so much they let him continue.

Can someone knowledgeable tell us who's right?

I have seen several versions of the explanation for how that Easter Egg came to be filmed. I've taken the one from the Riven Illuminated site, which has been around since at least 1999, as it gives a direct quote from RAWA:

"I wasn't one of the Cyantists flown down to the studios in California for the live action filming, so I don't know first hand, but the way I remember the story was that he burst into song between takes (there was a lot of down time for the actors as sets were being set up, etc.). The cameras weren't rolling, but when they were ready to film, they asked him to do it again."

The whole page is here -

That makes more sense to me, as I would not expect a professional actor to ruin a take by going off-script. I think the "legend" has been garbled by frequent repetition on various Riven and Myst universe information sites.
