Songs of Childhood
November 23, 2011 § Leave a comment
I have just found a book that is my namesake! Songs of Childhood by T. Giddings, W. Earhart, R. Baldwin (all academics with the musical education of American children in mind!) was published in America in 1923, and has over a hundred songs of all sorts, with some gorgeous illustrations. Many of them have attributable authors and composers so are not part of what appears to be normally described in America as the ‘Mother Goose’ collection of nursery rhymes.
