The folk song revival in England 4: No More Folk Songs
'No Nation has a richer store of traditional music than England, and none is more prone to undervalue its heritage.'
In 1922 Cecil Sharp , who had been in poor health for many years, died. Ralph Vaughan
Williams, although still deeply involved in folk music, ceased his collecting activities. Many of the young men who would have replaced them had been killed in the First World War.
The Folk Society struggled on, with most members holding the view that all the best folk songs had been collected.

Can the disaster be postponed indefinitely?
