EDINBURGH GB Piano teacher
Worth buying for the Dalmatian Cradle Song & "The Owls" alone !

Carol Barratt's accompaniment to "Allan Water" & "Ash Grove" are interesting and definitely 'grow on you'; they are independent of the
vocal line and sometimes pitched higher than it -- good experience for the singing student.

Editor's background notes useful for
explaining Betty Roe's songs.
Some English translations could be updated, e.g. Taubert's Lullaby.

No original text supplied for the Sicilian River Song.

Good selection of songs. Useful CD.
Not so keen on some of the folk songs from other countries, although I understand why they're there.
