"The book includes musical examples and lyrics from over 75 folk songs, ballads, and national songs collected and published during the Victorian era. The appendixes contain discussions on interpreting songs, an assessment of relevant secondary sources, and a bibliography and alphabetical song list. Author David Gregory provides a solid foundation for the study of folksongs and suggests the study of folksong revivals as an insight to Victorian cultural and intellectual life."--BOOK JACKET." ;
