Percustard Lyr/Chords Req: The Rosscrea Cows (19) RE: Lyr/Chords Req: The Rosscrea Cows 16 Jun 02

Songs of Australian Working Life Radic Thérèse Greenhouse Elwood, Vic 1989 207 Playwright and music historian Thérèse Radic presents words and music for more than 100 songs, together with details of melodies and chords. Radic provides details of the origins of both words and music for each song, who first collected them and where they were published. These are mainly songs with clear Anglo-Saxon and Celtic influence, but also featured are some songs by Aborigines and by recent immigrants. The selection combines 'traditional' and political songs from 1788 to the present. An index of first lines is provided. An overlapping collection, with less historical information, is Warren Fahey's Eureka: The songs that made Australia (Omnibus, Sydney, 1984, 236p).
