Third edition. During the 25 years since first publication of Traditional Songs of the Maori, both it and the recordings of the songs in it have been regularly used by Maori groups and individuals as aids for learning the songs. The authors take pride in this and hope the book will continue to be useful. A few amendments have been made to the translations and song notes but otherwise the book has been left largely unchanged.


24 p. of music ; 26 x 38 cm.
