Early English Ballads from the Percy and Child Collections (Ballads Reliques)

Early English Ballads from the Percy and Child Collections (Ballads Reliques)

Hermes Nye's "sneaking fondness for the English things from Percy and Child" takes center stage on this collection of ballads. The singer's commentaries enliven the notes: for example, Nye writes, "Sir Walter Scott collected ["Binnorie"], and probably had enough integrity not to add to it, although we can never be sure about those old boys."
