Subject: RE: Sydney Carter Recordings & Books
Surprised at the request for availability of songbooks. Many were issued published by Galliard Ltd in piano and chord books called In The Present Tense Books 1-5 and include most of the best known from One More Step to My Last Cigarette (Sheila Hancock), Port Mahon (Julie Felix etc) to George Fox. I have the first 3 from first publications in the late sixties. All 5 are still available on line from Stainer and Bell at £6 each (I guess this is the brief link mentioned above - clearly not Carte's complete output but I would still consider the collection quite comprehensive. I was recently asked to play When I needed a Neighbour (another great school assembly favourite) at church and was able to oblige.
