SharpThe Vaughan Williams Memorial Library opened The Full English, which is the largest free digital archive in the world of English traditional music and dance. The numbers are significant: 44,000 records and 58,000 digitized images, which can be accessed directly from the website of the Library. This is the largest project ever undertaken by English Folk Dance and Song Society (EFDSS), since it was founded in 1930 by Cecil Sharp House. And was organized primarily at the confluence of the materials of twelve collectors / researchers, within whose collections is now possible to search and browse. From a technical point of view, as you can read in the presentation page of the archive, “as part of a union between tradition and new media, more than 58,400 titles from the most important collections of traditional music – including manuscripts, notes and letters – have been preserved, cataloged and digitized before being uploaded to the central digital”, from which you can consult them today. And finally from all over the world, not only scholars but also enthusiasts can browse through the collections of Harry Albino, Lucy Broadwood, Clive Carey, Percy Grainger, Maud Karpeles, Frank Kidson, Thomas Fairman Ordish, Frank Sidgwick, Cecil Sharp, Ralph Vaughan Williams, Alfred Williams and Mary Leather.
