Mormon Folk Song and the Fife Collection

Author Thomas E. Cheney

The author reviews Austin Fife's collection of Mormon folk songs according to the criteria of what makes a song a folk song. Although the collection is rather disorganized and over half of the collected songs are not true Mormon folk songs, Fife's work is still a valuable work. Austin Fife's collection of hymns, songs, and spoken word is at the Library of Congress; audio tapes were sold to Brigham Young University.
