The third in my "murder ballads for baby" series--the title is artistic license, as not all the songs are actually murder ballads. They are, however, all Child variants. This disc contains three versions of Child #10, my favorite song about sororicide; the opening and closing tracks are versions of Child #1, "Riddles Wisely Expounded."

To have a FAVOURITE song about sororicide is a little disturbing. (Issues with your sister, perhaps?) But this is interesting nevertheless. I'd be interested in a trade for the series if you're up for it.
