433 pp, 8vo (8" H), soft cover. "....embodies the results of a lifetime of study by one of England's leading folklorists, concerning the relationship of the evolution of English folk song style and the evolution of English society.

Sub s i d i a r y t hemes concern the structure of English folk melody, with special consideration of modal music, of the decorative art of English singers and of the relationship with the folk song of other nations. Over 100 musical illustrations (ex am pl es ).
