Margaret V Mudcat CD Rose: Liner Notes PermaThread (54* d) RE: Mudcat CD Rose: Liner Notes PermaThread 07 Feb 03

Hi, Genie. I believe the best way to attribute "Down by the Salley Gardens" is as follows.

"Words: William Butler Yeats; Tune: Traditional. Yeats' poem, published in the collection "Crossways" in 1889, appears as a song set to the air "The Maids of Mourne Shore" in "Irish Country Songs Collected and Arranged by Herbert Hughes," Vol. I (London: Boosey & Hawkes, 1909)."

This is embarrassing to admit, but I don't know how to make italics in these postings. Book titles should of course be italicized and not in quotation marks, so if you are able to put "Crossways" and "Irish Country Songs..." in italics and remove the quotes I'd be grateful. Quotes around "The Maids of Mourne Shore" are fine.

The rest of my credits etc. are fine as is, though perhaps you could take out the parentheses around "Recorded by Bill...crickets" since parentheses always seem to imply that whatever's in them is somehow dispensible. Picky, picky, I know! Thanks.
