A Century of Song (CD)

A Celebration of Traditional Singers since 1898 released to mark the society's centenary in 1998.

Compiled and edited by Derek Schofield and Malcolm Taylor, who also wrote the notes on the singers and the songs

This collection especially important for any traditional folk song fans for making available the 5 tracks of phonograph recordings made in the first decade of this century. These enable us to have at least a small sample of how folk sang at the time. These tracks whilst lacking in audio quality, pay dividends by repeated listening to them.
