Each entry consists of the title of the tune, followed by alternate titles (AKA = also known as...) and prompts (AKA and see...) referring the reader to information contained under other titles. Tunes with foreign titles are usually retained under those titles unless the tune has been disseminated under its English translation, in which case the English title is the one preferred. I have sought to include an English translation of a title, whether the title is known by its English title or not. For the most complete information on a tune and its variants all alternate titles may be referenced by the reader, as this will provide the scope of the tune family as well as more complete source and variant information. In general, I subscribe to the theory that the more alternate titles a tune possesses, then the older it is or the more popular it has been, or both.
