Subject: RE: Living Tradition and the Revival

For some further discussion of the Traditional/Revival question, go to Rod Stradling's Web Magazine Musical Traditions, at   

Then click on the link labelled "Enthusiasms - shorter articles on subjects of interest, concern or outrage!"

On the "Enthusiasms" page, go to "No 30 - Matters of Texture, Function and Context - Rod Stradling sounding off again about traditional and revival singing ."

The debate kicks off with a thoughtful contribution from Rod (somewhat confusingly, this is located at the bottom of the page, rather than at the top). There are also replies to it from Mike Yates and myself, and Rod's comments on our replies.   Some of this material might be of use to you.

Good luck with your essay,
