"Minutes of Meeting held at School House. 3rd April 1943<br/> &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;R. D. L. Moore in the Chair <br/> 1. The minutes of the last meeting were read & signed. <br/> <br/> [...] <br/> <br/> 4. Roger Moore introduced the subject of ‘Ballads’. He spoke of their origin, which is very obscure since anonymity belongs to their very nature. They were never meant to be ‘literature’, since they were not written but have come down to us orally until Bishop Percy in 1765 started making his collection. He quoted Quiller- Couch in saying that almost all the places most celebrated in ballad poetry lie in the Border country between two lines, one drawn from the Firth of Forth to the Clyde &amp; the other from Newcastle-on-Tyne to St Bee’s Head. Quiller-Couch also draws two chronological lines &mdash; at the years 1350 and 1550 &amp; holds that the Ballad rose, flourished &amp; declined within that period. <br/> <br/> 5. Illustrations of Ballads were given as follows: <br/> Tam Lin&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;read by Elsie Harrod <br/> The Two Magicians&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;sung by A. B.

4. Roger Moore introduced the subject of ‘Ballads’. He spoke of their origin, which 
is very obscure since anonymity belongs to their very nature. They were never 
meant to be ‘literature’, since they were not written but have come down to us 
orally until Bishop Percy in 1765 started making his collection. He quoted Quiller-
Couch in saying that almost all the places most celebrated in ballad poetry lie in 
the Border country between two lines, one drawn from the Firth of Forth to the 
Clyde &amp;amp; the other from Newcastle-on-Tyne to St Bee’s Head. Quiller-Couch also 
draws two chronological lines &amp;mdash; at the years 1350 and 1550 &amp;amp; holds that the Ballad rose, flourished &amp;amp; declined within that period.  &lt;br/&gt;
