Sheffield Carols Book

Sheffield Carols Book

The fifty carols presented in this new edition are part of an active traditional repertoire that is performed in pubs, as well as chapels, churches, homes, and in the open air, in villages to the north-west of Sheffield. With its roots in eighteenth-century English vernacular musical life, it is a tradition of carolling that largely predates the predominant Victorian conception.

Popular Irish Songs

Popular Irish Songs

The songs of Ireland enjoy popularity far beyond the shores of the Emerald Isle. Rich with melody, sentiment, and lively spirit, they warm the hearts and lift the spirits of all who sing them. Here is a collection of the best of those songs, including the most popular Irish-American songs from the turn of the century.Several of the songs are from Thomas Moore's Irish Melodies, including "'Tis the Last Rose of Summer," "The Minstrel Boy," and "Believe Me, If All Those Endearing Young Charms." Patriotic songs like "The Wearing of the Green" and comic songs such as "Who Threw the Overalls in Mistress Murphy's Chowder" are included, along with such popular favorites as "Danny Boy," "My Wild Irish Rose," "Sweet Rosie O'Grady" and "When Irish Eyes Are Smiling."This treasury of 36 songs will add a true touch of Irish spirit to St. Patrick's Day gatherings and every kind of songfest where singers gather to share songs of universal appeal. They are reprinted here in piano arrangements with complete lyrics, most of them with their original sheet-music covers. A new Introduction includes background notes on the history of each of these memorable songs.

Traditional Tunes - Frank Kidson

Traditional Tunes - Frank Kidson


Price: 10.95

Published in 1891 in an edition of only 200 copies, Frank Kidson's volume of Traditional Tunes assured his place in history - along with Lucy Broadwood, Sabine Baring Gould, and William Barret - as one of the pioneers of song collection from the English oral tradition whose independent efforts anticipated both the foundation of the Folk Song Society and the development of the wider 'folk' movement. Lucy Broadwood said of Kidson's book: 'Its appearance marks an important event in the history of our folksong, for the book - a mine of beautiful tunes and quaint words - is the earliest published collection of unharmonised and "unembellished" English traditional airs and texts to be accompanied by the annotations of a scholarly collector.
