Description
Information
'Farewell and adieu to you fair Spanish ladies, Farewell and adieu to you ladies of Spain, For we've received orders for to sail for old England, But we hope in a short while to see you again.'

One of the great English popular art forms, the folk song can be satirical, erotic, painful, dramatic, rueful or funny. This acclaimed new collection brings together all the classic folk songs as well as many lesser-known discoveries, encompassing everything from sea voyages to lovers' laments, rural traditions to raucous pleasures. Published in cooperation with the English Folk Dance and Song Society, this volume presents the songs with music, and annotations on their original sources and meaning.
