'Down Yorkshire Lanes - The Folksong collection of R.A.Gatty 1907 - 10' is a book which we've been working on for some years. It contains around 56 songs collected in the summer of 1907 by Reginald Gatty and Ralph Vaughan-Williams and by Gatty in 1910. The collection is contained in 8 exercise books which are uncollated. This publication brings the material together in a singing context for the first time. For prices and further details;

Read it from cover to cover. Some absolutely classic versions. Very well presented. Excellent historical background to singers and songs. Despite what Paul asserts as not being an academic tome, I think it's a must-have for singers and scholars alike. Highly recommended.

Right then…First point. There is no ISBN. This is a private printing and only 250 copies have been printed. Ann, if you'd like to contact me via;
http://www.hallamtrads.co.uk/
then I can send you what you need.
Second point; Ray, we sold all that we had taken to Whitby but there are still plenty left if you want one. Just contact us and we'll sort you out.
Many thanks for reviving this thread both of you. The book is still available via the website of by contacting us. It's also available from Hedingham Fair if that's easier for people in the south of England.
Paul
