Thread Name: New Penguin Book of English Folk Song
Subject: RE: New Penguin Book of English Folk Song
well, arguably it already was before it was written! In that the authors deliberately set out to compile songs that were "popular": songs that had been noted down and sung many times.

I'd be keen to hear some recommendations of some English folk song books that have obscure and unusual/eccentric songs, actually. I think I have enough "core repertoire" song books on my shelves now.
