Thread Name: Is there a 'Childs' songbook
Subject: RE: Is there a 'Childs' songbook
Diane, why do you have such a down on Bronson, referring to the tunes he published as "crap" and "tatty"?

Obviously the original singers thought they were worth singing, and the collectors thereof thought they were worth collecting - surely, Bronson just brought them together so that others could make up their own minds, and along the way enabled some of us to learn quite a lot about traditional tune structures, modes, etc.

I'm not trying to stir up an argument here - seriously, I would like to know.
