Inhaltsangabe: In his Foreword to Harriet M. Pawlowska's reissued classic Merrily We Sing: 105 Polish Folksongs, Edmund Dehnert, folklorist and ethnomusicologist, writes that in "folkloric investigations of urban American ethnic groups.the folklorist seeks out not quaint survivals in marginal cultures but the mainstream of modern life: the city. Folklore is a body of material distinct from the elitist, the formal, the institutionalized, and the highly visible. But it reflects central concerns: the tensions, anxieties, satisfactions, and aspirations of urban culture.But the modern researcher finds the collection valuable for more than the service of preservation. The unique motive and context.allow us to discover the processes of ethnic tradition that determined what was kept, what was changed, and what was forgotten."
Inhaltsangabe: Compilation of 105 Polish Folksongs in English translation.
