Pioneer Song Book 1844 - 1944

£14.99

Product description

A book published by the Workers Music Association for the Watford Co-operative Society's Education Committee, to commemorate the Centenary of the Rochdale Pioneers. In very good condition, although well used, the card covers having a grubby appearance with general marks and soiling from handling; the corners and spine ends are worn down and wear is evident to all edges; small closed tear, approx. 1 cm, to the top of the back. The two binding staples have rusted, and there are some light foxing spots on several pages; watermarks on bottom corners of front end paper and page 1. Former owner's name written faintly on upper corner of front cover. The Rochdale Pioneers sought ways and means to overcome economic injustice and exploitation. They opened their own shop, bought and sold their own goods, and thus short-circuited the profit maker and monopolist. This book brings together the lyrics and music of 64 songs in four sections: co-operative songs, beginning with 'England Arise', songs of other lands including 'Battle Hymn of the Republic' (USA), concert party songs including 'The Girl with a Spanner', and sociable songs which start with 'When the saints go marching in'. An excellent book which any singing group will enjoy.
