minstrlmummr: (daffy lute)

--There is a chance that I missed the obvious in my research, in that I neglected to download public-domain copies of things I found before, like the 79 Black-letter ballads, etc.     However, I remedied that tonight.    

Link to "79 Black-letter Ballads"  http://archive.org/details/colletcionofseve00lilluoft%C2%A0

Link to Internet Archive copy of Laneham / Langham's Letter:  http://archive.org/details/lanehamsletterd00lanegoog ;

Last but not least, copy of a 19th-century book which surveys / summarizes the book / jestbook / ballad list (all owned / known by Captain Cox) from Laneham's Letter  ("Captain Cox, His Ballads and Books") :  http://archive.org/details/captaincoxhisba00lanegoog ;  It turns out the excerpt used in "Tudor Minstrel" is part of a longer list of works, and the second half of the list includes "The Hundred Merry Tales"  8)    8)

My Kindle is supposed to accept .pdf 's.  I downloaded and copied, the files show up on the list when the Kindle is connected to the computer, I can't read them yet, but if I attempt another transfer, at some point in the next few days TWO copies will appear there (Kindle's sort of a bitch that way...).


This is rather a long list, and we may not get to all the songs (OTOH, we have 90 minutes  8).

If you have a part song in mind to rehearse / learn and it's not on the list, and you have sheet music, we'll do it if you can bring copies to share.
