In a few instances, small errors in the music printed in the original edition have been corrected, thanks to the vigilance of our music-setter, Julian Elloway. These changes were not specified in the book, but are shown here for the sake of completeness. The notation given here is taken from working files and is not laid out precisely as published.

Droylsden Wakes

Penguin printed the whole song in 6/8, with two semiquavers in the 5th bar of the chorus. These should have been quavers, and the chorus in 3/4 as it originally appeared in the Journal of the Folk Song Society V (19) 1915, 204.

The Grey Cock

Crotchet rests in the final bar and alternative final bar amended to quaver rests.

Jack the Jolly Tar

In Penguin the second note in the final bar was printed as a crotchet; this should have been a quaver.
