Thread Name: Composers 'stealing' folk themes
Subject: RE: Composers 'stealing' folk themes
Other composers, I feel, should follow Vaughan Williams example and give credit - on the general side though, its important that the music(trad/folk) is getting the extra exposure by people adapting/stealing it.

After all, folk musicians are essentially doing the same thing - but we nearly always(!) credit Anon.
