G'day John,

I seem to remember that Ron Edwards (now the living doyen of Australian folk collectors) is putting together a song book of TI material. I can check when i get home and have access to the infinite chaos I laughingly call my library.

If you are already a member of his Australian Folklore Society, you may have that material already.

I think he would only have melodies, song words and English translations, where necessary, but he may be able to supply dubs of his tape recordings for someone interested in the harmony aspect ... even publish something on the subject (nice contra-deal).

regards,

Bob Bolton
