Notes and Editorial Reviews
There is a wonderful legacy of Folksong in Europe, and we must all be glad that, somehow, it has survived. In our present world of wall to wall music the need for folksong in a previous era is hard to imagine. But one upon a time, this was the music that was most likely to be encountered in daily life. It was played at Fairs and Festivals; it was the dance music at weddings and barndances; it was sung at work to help keep a rhythm going; and it was the entertainment in the Pubs and homes of our ancestors. Folksong very nearly did not survive until today. If it had not been for a handful of devoted collectors in each country, who toured the land at the end of the 19th and beginning of the 20th centuries, taking these songs down on music paper as they heard them sung, then very few would have survived the upheavals that followed the First World War. On this disc, we have a delightful cross section of the European Folksong tradition.
