A gorgeous book of Russian folk songs with English translations and sheet music

I knew I'd find it if I looked hard enough! :)

A professional singer and musician in my pre-writing days, I still have a passion for folk songs. This book, A Russian Song Book (Dover Song Collections) has English translations as well as the original Russian lyrics, and the music to go with it. I'm very happy, especially as at the moment, I'm working on my own book of Russian Christmas carols. Those boring conservatoire years are coming in handy, after all :)
