Matthew Edwards Folk Songs: Flintshire & Vale of Clwyd (19) RE: Folk Songs: Flintshire & Vale of Clwyd 19 Nov 11

Thanks very much, Nigel, for your hard work in posting all these here.

As a footnote the phonograph cylinders on which Mrs Ruth Herbert Lewis recorded the songs were donated to the National Museum of Wales in 1969, and new technology has actually enabled some of the recovery of a few of the recordings.

The story of these recordings appears on the website for St Fagan's National History Museum Phonograph Recordings by Mrs Ruth Herbert Lewis. A list of the recordings which were successfully restored also appears on the website List of recordings but I couldn't access the RealAudio clips, and owing to current staff shortages at the museum I'm not sure that there is anyone is available to respond to queries.
