Subject: RE: Tune Req: Tunes for Roy Palmer's collections
For the broadside songs I think he used the given tune in the rare cases where a tune was specified. For the others I think he just chose tunes that he liked that fitted the song structure. He usually has an appendix giving the source for texts and tunes.
