Sixteen English Folk Songs (arr. Duarte)

Cecil Sharp (1859 – 1924) was a music teacher and composer who collected and chronicled more than 4,000 English and American folk songs in a number of collections in the late nineteenth century and early twentieth century. He thus contributed to the revival of English folk music in the early twentieth century.

John Duarte selected sixteen English folk songs from this collection and dedicated the arrangements in 1965 to Gregory d’ Alessio, who was editor of the guitar magazine The Guitar Review at the time.
