The Singing Tradition of Child's Popular Ballads
576 Pages, 7x10in.
The Singing Tradition is a single-volume, abridged edition of Bronson's four volume The Traditional Tunes of the Child Ballads. To create this edition, Bronson selected those tunes and texts which had the strongest representation in the oral tradition, excluding those from the original collection which only existed in print. There are no tunes in this abridged edition which are not present in the larger work.
