Folksongs of England, Ireland, Scotland, Wales
Selected and Edited by William Cole
Beautifully illustrated and easy to use, Folk Songs of England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales, 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 rebellions, 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. 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 the songs may be sung in their original language.
