Lesley N. Help: Bishop Percy's Folio Manuscript (14) RE: Help: Bishop Percy's Folio Manuscript 08 Jan 00


Bruce, even collectors aren't always authentic. Besides santizing words, collectors sometimes married words with tunes they had no connection with (Chappell and Sharp both did so). Sharp often also completed songs with words from other sources, and I've run across others who felt the words to a tune were so inappropriate they wrote their own completely new versions! I suppose that's part of what helps make it the folk process!!
