Song Books published prior to 1900 (For dance tune books go here)


  • English Traditional Songs and Carols Ed. Lucy Broadwood - 1908 For the most part these were collected between 1893 and 1901. Very difficult to find and even when republished in 1974 EP Publishing (and Rowan and Littlefield in America) still not an easy acquisition. Facsimile available at Archive.com
  • Old English Popular Music by William Chappell Ed. H.E.Wooldridge Additions by Frank Kidson
  • Popular Music of the Olden Time by William Chappell (1809 -1888). In two volumes, this work has been an important reference for many years. It is now freely available for download. Volume 1 Volume 2
  • Sussex Songs: Popular Songs of Sussex arranged by H F Birch Reynardson - undated- Leonard and Co, (London). (Edited in collaboration with Lucy Broadwood) (stated by Lucy Broadwood to have been published in 1889)
  • Wit & Mirth or Pills To Purge Melancholy by Thomas D'Urfrey was published in several volumes between 1653 and 1723. Volume six is available online at Project Gutenburg
