Thread Name: New Cecil Sharp Book - 'Still Growing'
Subject: RE: New Cecil Sharp Book
Not sure that I'm with Malcolm Douglas on the advantages of acid-free paper not discolouring. My old copies of "Penguin Book of English Folksongs" etc now have this wonderful appearance, as if they've marinaded in stewed tea and Guiness for fifty years: and that seems to resonate very well with the music enshrined within, and also with my own life. I kind of like it.
