FAR newspaper has an article about a singalong book and CD of recent and old Finnish music, translated by Barbara Helsingius. The book contains not only the English song lyrics, but also the melody and chords for accompaniment, and original song titles in Swedish or Finnish. She also performs many of the songs herself. Examples are "The Swan" by Ehrström and Runeberg, to jazz and foxtrot.
