Far above (post by AggieD, 28 Mar 05) reference is made to the song's lyrics as they appear in "Voiceworks 2." Lyrics to several other African songs are also given.

There are several of these books by Peter Hunt, published by Oxford Press. Some are for children.

Voiceworks

Is anyone at Mudcat familiar with these songbooks? Do they include reference and source material?

Some very different versions of African-American folk material are included- are these compositions-revisions by Peter Hunt or have they a source?
