This is a terrific resource, thanks! It's written at the perfect level for my students. For the songs I already teach in detail (such as Barbara Allen and Twa Sisters), I think the articles do a good job. For other songs for which I don't have quite enough examples, these articles may help me identify variants that I hadn't run across. And some of these songs I didn't know at all, so it's fun to read about them.

Good stuff.
