The early history of song on its musical side may be regarded as the history of the evolution of melody: and since what is known of melody before the end of the 16th century, apart from the folk-song, is extremely slight, it is in the folk-song itself that this evolution is primarily to be studied.
Song passed with the close of the age of chivalry from the noble to the burgher class.

 What is Art Song?   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
True folk songs are not composed but an oral tradition : when "captured" by Cecil Sharp, Butterworth, Vaughan Williams in England; Bartok or Kodaly in Eastern Europe and others, they become formalized and frozen, when in their natural habitat they change according to region, family tradition, individual singers.
Neither are folk song because they are composed with a certain degree of precision, whereas in folk song the whole point is expression, not by classically trained singers but with native, naïve enthusiasm.
Folk song has a different cultural setting; it is part and parcel of events like weddings, parties, wakes, etc. where audience and performers are focused on the event.
