The 120 songs collected by Lehr and Best have been transcribed by Pamela Morgan and illustrated by Elly Cohen. Some recall the distant past of a long and rich seafaring heritage; others tell of such recent tragedies as the displacement of outport people and the sinking of the Ocean Ranger. The selection represents the state of the folksong in Newfoundland today; in some part it documents what is lost and forgotten, but it also celebrates what has survived, and thrives.

For most of the last decade Lehr and Best have been travelling around the island recording the voices and favourite songs of anyone, young and old, who would perform. Recordings took place in family kitchens, on stage heads, and in trap stores while the singer knitted twine or repaired lobster pots, aboard ships at anchor or en route to some small deserted harbour. Humming engines, blowing oilstoves, or clattering supper dishes provided accompaniment.

It is essentially the same book but it does have a new preface by Lehr who reveals that even she no longer owned a copy of the original. To any one with even a superficial knowledge of Newfoundland music, a quick look at the titles of the songs contained within the collection reveals how rigorous Lehr and Best were when they travelled across and around Newfoundland to find singers and songs.

the book stands as an important collection of lesser-known Newfoundland songs

the book stands as an important collection of lesser-known Newfoundland songs. Reading it gives a glimpse of the incredibly rich song traditions that are so much a part of the Newfoundland folkways. There is a sense, in this book, of a growing energy and enthusiasm about the old song traditions. This is a truly wonderful book and I highly recommend it to anybody who is interested in Newfoundland or who would like to get to know a forgotten world where the mystery of our existence still lingers and taps into the core of our souls.

Wonderful to compile a history of Newfoundland songs and their origins BUT the title is misleading. It is NOT a book of songs to play on the piano. It is a book to read.....

This is an excellent compilation of songs from Newfoundland which is edited very thoughtfully. The book taps into the psyche of a wonderful land, Newfoundland, its traditions, people and its mystery. This is a truly wonderful book and I highly recommend it to anybody who is interested in Newfoundland or who would like to get to know a forgotten world where the mystery of our existence still lingers and taps into the core of our souls. A real - must purchase - if you would like to be taken a way to remote "bays" and "coves" of Newfoundland and vicariously get to know this wonderful and humane culture. I visited Newfoundland recently from Boston and read the book again during my visit.
