Subject: Obit: Frank Purslow
It has been reported on Musical Traditions today that Fank Purslow died this morning.
Frank was responsible for the huge amount of work on the George Gardiner (and Hammond Bros) Song collections and put together the 4 great small books of the siongs - ie, Marrowbones, Wanton Seed, Foggy Dew and the fourth which has slipped out of my head!
I for one am indepted to Frank and his great work.
