GUEST,SteveG C Sharp Folk Songs of England 2 vol set (18) RE: C Sharp Folk Songs of England 2 vol set 08 Apr 11


Much more useful in my opinion is the 2 vol set by Maud Karpeles 'Cecil Sharp English Folk Song Collection' which reproduces different versions and fragments as well as the fuller songs. Fairly scarce but I got my set for much less than the prohibitive prices being bandied here. From what I've seen the 2 Sharp vols mentioned here are just as bowdlerised and sanitised as his other publications.
The bawdy material is not in Karpeles, but the whole lot is due online from the original mss anyway shortly.
