Thread Name: Bertsongs? (songs of A. L. 'Bert' Lloyd)
Subject: RE: Bertsongs?
Academically, it is important - probably vital. Perhaps Mudcat is akin to peer review, so nobody can complain if it gets a bit harsh; that's how it works provided we can retain some common politeness. For the rest, Domeama for one is too good a song to let slip, and perhaps what is really getting up our noses is that every last one of us has been taken in to some extent at some time.[quote from theVulgarBoatman]
no,once you start using this criteria[a song is agood song] for singing, ignore categorisation,it doesnt matter whether Do Me Amma was traditional or not.,neither does it matter that we have been fooled.
It matters to scholars,but it is not a reason for not singing the song.
was Do me amma entirely a lloyd composition,or a part composition?
