Who Shall Sing of the Valiant Woman

These songs celebrate women of tradition, fiction and fact through the songs that tell their stories and praise their courage. Some valiant women are quietly strong, and others are warriors; some are famous and some obscure; some are fireworks and some are flowers. And all followed their convictions and their vision, and all are worthy of our notice – and often our admiration. The songs and tales come from several centuries of Anglo-American tradition, although some of them are the descendants of tales as old as civilization itself.
