PREFACE THEFIRST DITION TO EStudentso{ music have on occasions atiemptedto put the melodiesof some of ihe more outstandingJapanese folk songsto ihe noiaiion of Western music in order to preserve ihem from oblivion. Frorn the literary poini of v;ew, ihese folk-songshave been translatedinto English and co lectedby scholars sincethe beginningof modernjapan. However,a completecollection of ihe melodies has not been assembled. A rhoroughstirdy o{ these folk songswh'ch are characterized the placesof iheir by origin requirs the effods of specialized scholars :nd experisin musicand liieraiure. My efforis in compiling ihis book does noi preiend io be such a specialized siudy folk songs lt is iniendedto be a collectionof the mosi reprsentative of lapanese songs ol our countryand to offer a handbook the iolk-songs which are still beingsungthroughof Folk-songsare disiinguishedfrom ihe so-calledpopular songs which may be in voguefor a periodof iime but which are soonforgotten. Someo{ the folk,songs colleciedin ihis book were ai one time pcpular songs but have developedinto {olk-songsby thei. being sung over half a century though their authors v/ere forgotten. All rhe songsassembledhave been sung before 1900 and are sii I being sung and may riehtly be regarded as folk'songsof Japan. True folk songshave slch individualpecullariiies and characteristics that their notaiion in Western nrusic can be accomplished only imperfecily,for it is noi only dl{ficult to indicatethe {requenty occurringgrace nores of JEpanese songswhich include even quafter tone iniervalsbut there is also a rremendousdifference in the manner of singing them among thc Japanese peoplethemselves. Moreover,io isol:ie rhe melody of a Japanese song frorn ihe rhyihm of its accompariment of hayashi,lhe orchestraof {lute. drum and samisen, io give only half of the is realiiy of the song. This is particularlyirue in songsof which the rhythm of iis accompanimenthas been emphaslzed. and any attemptto notatethem in the Westernsiyle is not only a violaiionof the sp rii of the songsbui also fails to revealthe true melody Again, ihese folk songscome to life only when they are sung in the style pecutiar to the lapanese and especially ihe people of ihe region from which they originated, lo and they lose nrLch of thelr beauty and appeal if they are.sung by vocalisiswho have been trained n ihe Western manner of singingvibrtao. Since these folk-songscont:in ihe individual dialects of ihe various districts, it is ideal that rhey are sune by the natives of th region to which ihe songsbelona. The impossibilityof adequatelyiranslaiingthe catchy, rhythmic phrases, which in themselves hlve no nreaningbui which give a deflniie personaliry the folk-songsof io Japan,has requiredme to om't ihem in my book. These phrasesmay be comparedto ihe hi, ho. the merry-o, "ta ra,ra boom de ay, "yo ho,ho' and similar portions of Englishsongs. Despitethese technicaldi{ficulties,I have endeavored compilesome of the repreio seniativetolk songsof lapan becauseof my e:rnest wlsh to introducethem to Western pecpies For these reasons,I have h:d to chooseonly ihose folk songswiih simple melodiesand rhyihm, avoidingthose which are full of irills and iurns and at the same time lowering somewhatihe key of the melodies sung sottovoce in ihe higher register raisor ing to a certain exteni ihose of lower tones which are us'r:lly sung by men. ln receni years atiempts have been made to arrange some Japanese folk-songsso thai they may be sung wiih the accompaniment a piano or in the style of iazz. of It is my hope in cornpiing ihis book that through this colleciionof lapanese folk songs which are in the main in ihe minor scale and are characterized melodia lamenby toso m:y coniribute to ihe birth of a new style of comdositions.
