The definitive collection of folk music - one of the great English popular art forms One of the great English popular art forms, the folk song can be painful, satirical, erotic, dramatic, rueful or funny.

Published in cooperation with the English Folk Dance and Song Society, it is a worthy successor to Ralph Vaughan Williams and A. L. Lloyd's original Penguin Book of English Folk Songs.
