Folk Song in England 1970

Tribune 13 May 1970 p. 8.

THE famous folk singer A. L. Lloyd is about, to visit Australia, and in FOLK SONG IN ENGLAND you will find the results of his lifetime of study of English folk song. His main theme concerns the
relationship of the evolution of English society—tracing how, after the primitive development of ritual song, lyrical song began to flourish with the growth of the towns and merchant society. There are many subsidiary themes concerning, for instance, English modal music and the decorative art
of English singing. An invaluable book for the young folk singer. International Publishers, $10.00 (25c).
