Manx Ballads and Music
A. W. Moore’s collection was first published in 1896. The first edition was limited to 500 copies, and it has long been out of print and difficult to obtain on the second-hand market. There are 74 ballads in Manx, with English translations, and nearly half are accompanied by the old airs. This facsimile reprint incorporates me author’s corrections within the text, and faint areas in the music printing have been touched up.
