"It is not, I think, an exaggeration to declare that this is the most important event in the field since the publication of Sharp and Karpelesí Southern Appalachian collection"
THen perhaps you'd like to avail yourself of my offer to listen to some more of the contributions to folk song by Ewan and Bert rather than having to rely on the word of an Eastern European Classical Composer !
I've made this offer before but people seem to prefer to rely on the words of the New School of Academia
Perhaps actually listening to the stuff might help make your mind up who wrore our folk songs rather than trying to show the hacks did
