Sharp owed something to all these predecessors--most of all to Baring-Gould--but he rose to predominance because he was a different kind of collector who brought together and embodied a number of trends which distinguished the post-1903 revival from the movement of the 1880s and 1890s.

Sharp died in 1924 and with his passing the movement seemed to suffer a general failure of nerve.

He determined to learn all he could about the Morris, and eventually devoted much of his life to studying and collecting traditional music and dance, travelling widely to watch the few remaining sides, both in the Costwolds and the North east, and contacting former dancers of teams long disbanded.
Although others later added to his work, we owe Cecil Sharp an enormous debt, not only for starting the process of collection, but also for skilfully noting down the various subtleties of style which distinguished the various traditions.
By training teams of dancers and putting on displays he led a revival of interest in Morris dancing, and from the classes which Sharp and his English Folk Dance Society began, grew the clubs such as Greensleeves which, together with a few surviving village sides, continue to uphold the traditions and spirit of the Morris.
