GUEST,Terry Blankenship Help: Melodies to Broadside Ballads (38) RE: Help: Melodies to Broadside Ballads 19 Jun 01

I managed to find all of these books at the college library near where I live. Bruce Olsons web site very good also.

* BRONSON, Bertrand, Traditional Tunes of the "Child" Ballads. Princeton University Press, 1959-1972. The definitive collection of texts and melodies from manuscript and published sources. Vol I-IV.   * CHILD, Prof. Francis J., English & Scottish Popular Ballads. Vols 1-5. Dover. Pbk 1965 The definitive work on ballads including variants and investigations into source and background. Still unsurpassed a century after publication.

*Claude M. Simpson 'The British Broadside Ballad and Its Music' Rutgers Uni Press 1966 (a 900-page tome) has music for many broadsides.

Thanks, Terry
