This beautifully illustrated and easy to use songbook is a unique volume which includes over a hundred folk songs from the British Isles, chosen specifically for the beauty of their words and music. Songs of longing, of love, of the Irish and Scottish rebelions, as well as lullabies, children's songs, and even a few composed songs which have become a part of the folk heritage can be found in this collection. More than half of the songs in this book are not available in any comparable volume.
Easily played piano and guitar accompaniments are provided, and not only are the Welsh songs newly translated, but phonetic transcriptions of the lyrics are also included so that teh songs may be sung in their original language.

Musicroom Reviews

Rating Review
Customer Rating Good value. Well laid out with interesting notes on the origin of each song.


Customer Rating The best collection of traditional folk songs I have ever seen. It is a treasury of songs from around the British Isles and is beautifully illustrated and printed.

Customer Rating Not had this long enough to use much, but seems to have a lot of songs which I will find useful in near future. There is good representation of all 4 regions of G.B. Some songs I want for specific Music Festivals; so will be working on in early new Year. Good for singers who wish to take part in song competitions. Pat Jones, Kidsgrove, S.O.T.

Customer Rating Fantastic resource - will be using it for the traditional songs in my students' ABRSM grades.
