Description

Since moving to East Anglia Mary has been looking for songs collected in the area where she now lives. "The newly issued Classic English Folk Songs revised by Malcolm Douglas had much expanded notes on the song Lucy Wan which I have known for many years and the book included some biographical details of the source singer, Mrs Charlotte Dann (nee Few) of Cottenham. Spurred on by an informative email exchange with Malcolm Douglas I proceeded to extricate songs that had been archived together with Lucy Wan as part of the Lucy Broadwood collection in the Vaughan Williams Memorial Library in Cecil Sharp House. Unfortunately all the songs had texts that were fragmentary so I took the liberty of completing the texts from broadsides or song variants collected in the South of England."
