Thread Name: Southern Songster: New Hammond-Gardiner Book
Subject: New Hammond-Gardiner Book
Those who bought the previous volumes in the series Marrow Bones, The Wanton Seed and Southern Harvest might like to know that the next volume is just about ready to go to the publishers, Francis Boutle. The retail cost will be 15 pounds but pre-ordering can get it for 12.
The selection from the mss was made by Nick Dow who provided more biographies of singers, and musical notes on such as mode. I have provided historic notes as with the others in the series and the music has been set by Cohen Braithwaite Kilcoyne. This volume contains an unusually high percentage of Child Ballads and 10 chanties.
It can be pre-ordered from:
