Subject: RE: Lyr Add: Chanteys in the R.W. Gordon papers
I have the NY Times articles if you need them. I probably posted my notes from them in the "Advent of Chanties" thread.

Yes, text and tunes. I meant texts/tunes but not who sang them. Textual analysis. As if it was all just abstract/raw material that, when combined/collated, would offer info about the songs themselves and not about the people who made them or how the genres or cultures they belong to are "put together."
