Subject: RE: FolksongRecording from 1860 made audible
Amazing - it puts up the hairs on the back of the neck to hear a voice from a time when my grandfather's grandfather was around, and from when otherwise all we have are black-letter broadsheets and the written word. Its fuzziness and tantalising inaudibility make it all the more fascinating, like a vision only half glimpsed out of the corner of the eye. Thanks for that bit of time travel, Wolfgang.
