|Arms of Drakenfjord|
Unfortunately, the compiler of this tome has taken works from numerous bards of the Society for Creative Anachronism (as well as other modern artists) without permission, and has not included any credit or copyright whatsoever. These versions of the Society's bards were also apparently housed on a website called the Bardic Bower (which is now defunct).
On page 12 of the 1171 page document, this disclaimer is included:
If you have any lyric sheets, sheet music or other commentary to add please contact Dame Katrin Karlsdöttir at the email address of Katrin.email@example.com and pass along whatever information you may posses. For instance many of these pieces are of unknown origin and any notes of where they originated would be appreciated. Also if you are interested in increasing your collection of works many many more can be found archived at the Bardic Bower Website also known as the Bardic Hall… http://bardsbower.multiply.com Many notes and alternant versions can be found there as well. Printed copies of this document are unavalible due to the prohibitive cost of printing and shipping a 1,200 page document. Feel free to print it and distribute it as you will for use within the realms of the organizations that promote the Bardic arts such as Amtgard, The High Fantasy Society, and The Society for Creative Anachronism…Although the compiler, attributed as Dame Katrin Karlsdöttir, claims that "many of these pieces are of unknown origin" it seems unlikely that all these pieces by the Society's modern day bards would have been discovered with no credit or copyright noted.
Officers of Drakenfjord are listed on their website. The High Fantasy Society website has no contacts listed, and appears to be years out of date, though they do also have an active Forum and a Facebook group.
[Update: Bardic Babblings has also been published on a site called Yumpu.]
