Thread Name: New Book: Folk Song in England
Subject: RE: New Book: Folk Song in England
!The words I objected to were 'common origin' and 'all'"
And teh woirds I objected to were:
"much of the rest originated in high art! Or certainly higher than the common folk, sophisticated sources in other words. Dances in particular."
which you have refused to respond to and are now creating an excuse in order to avoid
Are you saying this is no longer your position, if you are not, answer my question and explain yourself
"So leaving 'working people devoid of a voice' are your words, not mine."
I don't care what words I chose - that is the unavoidable conclusion of your claim
I think you've painted yourself into a corner, don't you?
