ISBN: 978-0-89724-955-3

This beautifully illustrated and easy to use songbook is a unique volume which includes over a hundred folk songs from the British Isles, chosen specifically for the beauty of their words and music. Songs of longing, of love, of the Irish and Scottish rebellions, as well as lullabies, children's songs, and even a few composed songs which have become a part of the folk heritage can be found in this collection. More than half of the songs in this book are not available in any comparable volume.

Easily played piano and guitar accompaniments are provided, and not only are the Welsh songs newly translated, but phonetic transcriptions of the lyrics are also included so that the songs may be sung in their original language.
