Subject: RE: New Book: Folk Song in England
for feckj sake i have read those books, and i disagree , not every broadside writer was writing SOLELY for the purpose of money. of course they were trying to sell Broadsheets BUT SOME OF THEM LIKE ALL COMPOSERS TOOK PLEASURE IN TRYING TO DO PRODUCE GOOD ARTISTIC COMPOSITIONS.
that is my opinion, your opinion is different but that does not make either of us right, nor does the opinion of any of the authors that we have both read, any more correct, they had their own opinion and were also trying to sell books., that does not make their opinions gospel, any more that the opinions of historians who try to sell their books and who frequently have conflicting opiniona about different aspects of history.
