To Crystal of Ansteorra:

Sorry this is a little late in coming - I get the digest form of this 

The tapes you have are a set that was done at least 5 years ago by 
H. E. Margery "Maggie" du Bray (former Baroness of Elfsea).  There is 
a "Newcomers' Songbook" that goes with these tapes which has lyrics 
for all songs on the tapes.  I don't have the songbook myself, but I 
know someone who does (or at least, they had it a few years back).  
If you are interested in obtaining a copy of this book, e-mail me 
privately and I'll see what I can come up with.  If I can't track 
down the actual book, I know I can come up with many of the songs 
themselves ('cause Maggie borrowed some of them from me when she was 
working on the project).

Disclaimer:  lots of the lyrics in the "songbook" were just written 
down and passed by word of mouth.  Many aren't labeled with 
information as far as where the songs originated.  It was intended 
only to help new people learn the lyrics for songs that are often 
sung around SCA campfires.

Let me know if I can help,

Baroness Katrionna "Kat" MacLochlainn
Barony of Wiesenfeuer, Ansteorra
