Digital book with embedded midi files, by Alan Helsdon
(MTDL253)


Ralph Vaughan Williams spent nine days in and around King’s Lynn in January 1905 and September 1906.  He collected 86 songs and four dance tunes from 20 singers - one of whom also played the fiddle.  Along with much else, this book presents: his itinerary; a narrative account of the trips; all the songs and tunes as PDF pages with song texts, staff notation and playable midi sound files of their tunes; and a very substantial page of information on the singers.
