Thread Name: Bronson tunes - Child Ballads
Subject: RE: Bronson's tunes
The CD-ROM edition of Child is progressing. Expected? release is 2002.

THe Bronson portion of the project is progressing more slowly, due to lack of both time and funds. It's a major undertaking--some ballads have over 100 tunes listed by Bronson, and it's often unclear as to how the words fit the melody (or vice versa). Present plans are to publish (on CD) a photocopy of Bronson's transcriptions, and a click-to-play-or-view the same tune (or a simplified version, if necessary) with words displayed (synchronized with the music).
