KIRKUS REVIEW

Rich store of traditional material, valuable as much for the informative text (history, biography, critical comment and an interweaving of the three -- sources, development and significance), as for the fine arrangements of songs known often as threads of melody. They are all here, patriotic songs, shantys, cowboy and Negro melodies, hymns, war songs, play songs, game songs, ballads, minstrel and vaudeville songs, and so on. A grand volume -- for those who indulge in a ""little night music"".
