FOLKSONG-PLAINSONG FOLKSONG-PLAINSONG
A Study in Musical origins

by G.B. Chambers

In 1956 this book caused a storm among musicologists, for whom it was heresy to suggest that composed music owed its origin to folk music. The arguments that George Chambers adduces have played their part in the change of attitude that resulted and the greater respect in which folk music is now held. 2nd Edition, 1972. Preface by Ralph Vaughan Williams.
