Thread Name: source info: Tunes for Roy Palmer's collections
Subject: Tune Req: Tunes for Roy Palmer's collections
I've just been going through some of Roy Palmer's books which have eeb reissued in paperback by faber and faber.

I can't see anything in general about how the tunes he gives were obtained

I know a lot were song from sheets and common tunes were used but most singers and listeners are attracted first and foremost by the tune and if the words fit it's magic!

Any thoughts
