The Besom Maker And Other Country Folk Songs (eBook)
Sobre o livro
"The Besom Maker and Other Country Folk Songs" is a collection of traditional English countryside songs first published in 1888. The songs of this collection are such as would have been sung in the fields and meadows for generations, and perhaps are still known to some. With beautiful illustrations and complete lyrics and sheet music, this volume is not to be me missed by those with an interest in learning and playing traditional English songs. The songs include: "The Besom Maker", "God Speed the Plough", "The Wassail Song", "My Johnnie was a Shoemaker", "The Reaphook & the Sickle", "Mobblety Bobblety", "The Two Young Men of Kenilworth", "Forty Dukes a Riding", "The Jolly Ploughboy", and more. Many vintage books such as this are becoming increasingly scarce and expensive. It is with this in mind that we are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with a specially commissioned new introduction on folk music.
