Top pop from seventeenth-century England

Broadside ballads were single-sheet songs that sold for a penny a piece. A new project, 100 Ballads, welcomes ANZAMEMS members to explore their website which concentrates on over 100 resoundingly successful examples of the genre that they can investigate through recordings, images and a wealth of other materials. Whether you are interested in music, art, love, gender, tragedy, politics, family life, crime, history, humour or death, you will find something here to engage you.
