Of the tunes used for Y-h (Kah) Ribon Olam (even if used originally for another song), which is the first, and when was it composed and where? I know that the piyyut itself was composed in the 16th century but I haven't found anything regarding the melodies themselves.

I do not believe we know how the original tune went but we know from the author himself, R. Israel Najara, that the tune for this particular song was taken from an Arabic song 'ya rabbi salim salimi' and its mode (maqam) was Rast.
