GUEST,Dick Holdstock Lyr/Tune Add: Napoleon Bonaparte (44) RE: Lyr Add: Napoleon Bonaparte 08 Jun 01

Great to here others like this theme. I have recorded several of these Napoleonic songs with Allan Macleod, in cluding Naploeons Farewell to Paris. The words I used came from "Later British Broadside Ballads" By Holloway and Black page 200. The book contains an excellent selection of Napoleon Ballads.

These pro Napoleon British Isles Ballads were mostly written after the death of Napoleon and were in my opinion part of the whole movement for reform. I am about halfway through completing a book based on my collection of broadside ballads of reform from 1765 to 1865. I have been working on it for more than 10 years and who knows how long it will take to get it finished.
