        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.

        An excellent collection, well selected with some unusual items. The accompaniments are simple and effective.

        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.
