Thread Name: English Folk: Harmony Singing
Subject: RE: English Folk: Harmony Singing
In my theory Harmony was invented when 4 people aimed for the melody note and three of them missed. Several of the groups mentioned do songs like "Martin Said to his Man" this has that "English Folk" sound and was published by Thomas Ravenscroft in 1597 or so. So what's new. JohnB
