A Call for Responses

For many years I have contemplated writing a book on the Anthology, and now I think the time has finally come.

My proposed title is Changed Through Music:  Why Harry Smith's Anthology of American Folk Music Still Matters.

Now, at this point I'm in the process of writing a few sample chapters and crafting a proposal to send to publishers. However, I do know that I want to have a chapter featuring various perspectives on the title.  So:  I ask YOU - Why does the Anthology still matter?  Tell me in 50 words or less, and the best responses may well make their way into the finished book.  Send your response to alexander1228@gmail.com with the subject line "Why the Anthology Matters".  I look forward to reading your responses!
