Thanks to Nina for posting this, and Malcolm for creating it.

The second link under"Ancient Poems, Ballads, and Songs of the Peasantry of England" is to that category in Project Gutenburg, but it takes you to the catalog page.

I've just visited a couple of those sites. Wow! Hours to spend!

There are other things that I've not had time to add so far, and plenty more stuff out there that I don't know about yet, of course. Material turns up all the time, and some of the information came from the Forum here, thanks to people like Masato, Q and others. Eventually I intend sections on dance and instrumental music as well, but time is rather short just at the moment (evidently I had forgotten to mention the listings here, for example).

Good point about that Gutenberg link: it's quite an old one, and the site structure seems to have changed. I'll amend i

Dear Forum Members,

I must first extend my sincere apologies to any one of you I upset, annoyed, and/or otherwise put out with my double posting as well as my double ALL CAPS THREAD TITLE.

Jeri, I do not personally know you but I would really like too. I can't imagine what the world would be like if not souls like you were not upon it. You are completely correct in your assessment of not only me but the motive behind the ignorance. I am sorry to say I don't know all the rules of The Forum, I just know that a great number of kind folks have helped me when I asked and I thought I would pass on something you would like to know about(if you did not already that is)as a way of saying Thanks.

Malcolm, I thank you for an amazing resourse and I hope you are not upset with me for wanting to share it with these fine folks. I did not know whom to credit or I would have done so, (in caps I'm afraid).
I apologize once again and as always I extend my thanks for all your help.
Nina

Nina, if you're planning to be a regular visitor (or likely to be an accidentally regular visitor!) you should consider becoming a member. It's free, and you get all kinds of advantages over guests; none of which I can remember, other than the facility of sending and receiving personal messages (PMs) to and from any other 'Catter, and you can put your birthday or photo on the 'Cat.

Thank you so much Malcolm and thank you Nina for telling us about this site. I can't easily get to libraries from out here and having them send books gets expensive. Also they won't send the old ones, quite understandably. I may never get out of these sites. Thank you! Thank you! Joy

That's a fine one, Steves - deducated sounds like an interesting interbreeding of education with deduction (seduction were even better, in certain circumstances).
And I hope I shan't be fired (a good one too). Pardon conceded.

Subject: RE: Great Song Resource - Online Songbooks
From: Malcolm Douglas
Date: 30 Sep 04 - 07:25 PM

All the information is out there, but from time to time it needs to be drawn together into something approaching a coherent and manageable form. In some cases, the material has been put up "as is" in forms which are quite difficult to find or to use effectively (I am a great believer in proper indexes and lists of contents), so some commentary can also be helpful, even if it is often critical.

Essentially it's just a finding aid, and only incomplete work-in-progress (there is a great deal more that might usefully be done): it's a good thing that Nina mentioned it, though, as I would probably not have got around to doing that myself, such things being (by their nature) never finished.

One of the songbooks aided me today, with great background writing on Appalachia and religion. It will be part of an ongoing effort to sensitize our diocese to issues in our area.   AND I got a bunch of new songs, and discovered the Carter's didn't originate the text for "Where Shall I Be".

And don't forget that Google Books and Archive.org have hundreds of books available (Ashton included!). They're (for copyright reasons) mostly 19th century, but some earlier and some later. Almost all texts you find referenced from that era are available. I about 250 song and ballad books downloaded from those sources.
