Songs from village Lazy pod Makytou in Karol Plicka ś manuscript records
The manuscript collection of Karol Plicka (1894 – 1987) is one of the most important historical sources of the Slovak folk songs from the first half of the 19th century. Based on the manuscript records from the village Lazy pod Makytou (in Trenčín region) Plicka’s method of field work and mode of recording songs (melodic and textual rough copy, melodic fair copy) are analysed. Source criticism of his records not only became the starting point for reconstruction of the song repertoire collected in this village but also laid the basis for editing Plicka’s records of the musical component of the songs.
