Popular Music Of The Olden Time (1859)

I’m always looking for new sources of old music for my repertoire. Old books and new technology offer a wealth of possibilities.

“Popular music of the olden time : a collection of ancient songs, ballads, and dance tunes, illustrative of the national music of England : with short introductions to the different reigns, and notices of the airs from writers of the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries : also a short account of the minstrels” by William Chappell and George Alexander MacFarren was written in 1859.

A book on ancient music written 150 years ago seemed like it might be interesting and it proved to be so.
