Description

This book traces the early history of the first English folksong revival during the late Victorian era, focusing on the work of three prominent song collectors, Sabine Baring-Gould, Frank Kidson and Lucy Broadwood. It follows E. David Gregory's earlier book, Victorian Songhunters, continuing the story of English folksong collecting from when that book left off, and is copiously illustrated with examples of the folksongs collected during these years.
