Epigraph
Since I the poet's pen have took,
And swelled my notes into a book;
Let every tongue, by art refined,
Mingle its softest notes with mine.

-- Zion's Songster, 1831
Dedication
To my mother
ANN JANE JACKSON
and
my father
GEORGE FREDERICK JACKSON
who bestowed on me
the love of music
First words
FOREWORD
When the late Cecil J. Sharp and Mrs. Olive Dame Campbell went folk-song hunting in the southern Appalachians, the English folk-lorist was surprised that the people usually "misunderstood our requirements and would give us hymns instead" o the secular ballads that had survived from English and Scottish tradition.
