RWeir of Sing Out

reviews Parallel Strands by Martin Graebe & Shan Cowan

Many know the name of Cecil Sharp, but fewer know that of his song collecting mentor Sabine Baring-Gould. Martin Graebe and Shan Cowan resurrect some of his work on this fine English traditional music album. The vocal style may remind some of the Copper Family, but most listeners are going to hear a passel of unfamiliar songs destined to be added to repertoires.
