Thread Name: New Penguin Book of English Folk Song
Subject: RE: New Penguin Book of English Folk Song
Whilst not particularly knocking Penguin and its reprint - it is unreliable as a source - although the authors said they had indicated what they had revised/altered/added to - they only did this in a few cases.

What is really needed is the "Malcolm Douglas" version - "Classical English Folk Songs" which gives chapter and verse.

Incidentally to produce a version which people can use for singing does require collation.
