Description

A Bouquet of Hungarian Songs is a selection of Hungarian folk music compiled into a book of musical scores. The collection is 20 pages long with 16 traditional songs from various artists, including the sheet music as well as English, Hungarian, and German translations. The work can also be found under the other titles: Ungarischer Liederstrauss mit ungarischen, deutschen und englischen worten Magyar Nótacsokor. A Bouquet of Hungarian Songs was published under joint copy right to Bárd Ferenc És Fia & Nádor Kálmán in 1939 Budapest, Hungary. 1939 marks the start of the deadliest conflict in human history, World War II. During World War II Hungary was a member of the Axis Powers and suffered a large number of solider and civilian deaths. This was also a period there both Jews and Roma people faced discrimination and later deportation/ extermination throughout Hungary and much of Eastern Europe. The publication of “A Bouquet of Hungarian Songs” during this time shows that while Roma people faced extreme racism, their culture and music was still widely enjoyed and consumed by the same groups they faced discrimination from.
