GUEST,Marion Songs of Canadian slavery? (27) RE: Songs of Canadian slavery? 18 Sep 06


Hi folks, and thanks for the responses so far. I've got a few things here to look into. I'm working on a song about Marie-Joseph Angelique, a slave who was hanged in 1734 for starting a fire which destroyed much of Montreal. I thought it would be good to quote some lines or melodic material from a traditional song if I come across one.

Funny you should mention the British home children... I actually started a thread about another song project on that topic a few years back... there's some more discussion, and my lyrics, there.

Cheers, Marion
