SOE royal cv.jpg

  • edited, with new symphonies and accompaniments by J. L. Hatton
    3rd vol added ca.1890 a further collection of 72 English melodies and ballads popular during the last 50 years edited by Eaton Faning (1850-1927).
  • The first edition claimed 200 songs in two volumes of 100 songs each, and IMSLP's copy of vol.1 does indeed have 100 songs. However, when the 3rd volume came out, it claimed 281 for the three volumes together, and IMSLP's vol.2 has 106 songs in it. Together with the 1st volume's 100, and 72 in the 3rd volume, this only adds up to 278. The most likely explanation is that a later edition of either vol.1 or vol.2 had 3 songs added to it. This also means that IMSLP's contents list is short by three songs, and it is unknown what they are, or which volume they are from.
