Hi all,

Is there an (scholarly) online edition of Child's ballads? I've been to www.childballads.com, but it's not complete.

Thanks, Letty

My friend Judith owns the complete Child set--if you need something specific, let me know and I'll ask her to bring it in..............there are either very few (or no?) tunes in it though.

I DO have the text of the songs - without commentary.

I believe hers has commentary--it's 5 vols. She also has the complete Sharp and Niles........

There isn't a full online version, though there is an incomplete concordance (song texts only; no notes) which requires database software.  The work involved in processing the entire thing is very considerable (nearly 3,000 pages of extremely detailed text).  I'm working on it, but it's a long-term project.  Dick and Susan (founders of the Digital Tradition) have plans involving it too.

There are a few tunes in Child's addenda at the end of the final volume. Not much help. What you really need for tunes is Bertrand Bronson's The Traditional Tunes of the Child Ballads. This is in four very expensive and now out of print volumes from Princeton. Until Dick and Susan get them all up on the Mudcat, I suggest you use inter-library loan (and maybe a good copy machine).

Whee! We've got here--one complete Child with commentary (Sorcha), one complete text (Mario) and one complete Bronson (Gypsy). Looks like that covers it--

It's a project in the working. Lot of work tho.

We're adding at least one version of each Child Ballad to DigiTrad as we go along. That's work, too.

And as of last week I now have access to Bronson for extended periods - it's taken me a while to manage it. Regards, John

John, you could send me scans too. I seem to be at a standstill with the no tunes list. I could do come abc's. My e mail is at the resource site.

Well, sort of. My friend Judith owns it, and because I have proved over the years that I am Very Good with books, she would let me borrow it.
