Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Aussie versions of Child ballads?
I'm sure you're right regarding Child Ballads - that wasn't really my point in posting McKenry, I just thought the practice regarding British songs in general was interesting. BTW, that ballad list you suggest is pretty much exactly what Kidson was finding in Yorkshire 80 years before your work there (plus I think 'Henry Martin' and 'Lord Thomas').
