Rex Lovely versions of Robert Burns Songs (39) RE: Lovely versions of Robert Burns Songs 09 Jan 11

I am grateful to Gallus Moll for pointing out what was under my nose. Decades back I found an LP of Jean Redpath with credit to the research of Serge Hovey. The songs were not familiar to me and the arrangements, not my cup of tea. But it was compelling even if I didn't trust these melodies to be from the source. I regarded it as good enough and filed it among my LPs. After reading your note, I knew just where it was pulled it from the shelf and looked. Volume Six, sonofagun. Thank you for pointing out that there are more of these recordings. I will look for the other volumes knowing I can find the root of the true melodies within. That is all I was looking for,I will have a closer look now. Thank you Gallus Moll.
