The food of life?

Posted by wcmlibrary on January 10, 2011

After the epic that was the Irish collection, I have just spent a very pleasant couple of weeks sorting out our collection of song boooks and song sheets.  The whole collection is now fully catalogued, including one box stuffed full of song sheets.  Our song sheet collection has items dating back to the late 18th century and comes right up to date.

As you would expect we have many different copies of the socialist ‘classics’ – The Internationale, The Red Flag and England, Arise – but collections of socialist songs often included the Marseillaise as well.  The collection also includes a great number of Russian revolutionary songs.

We also now have a separate collection of Workers’ Music Association material.

As usual you can find all the items by searching our online catalogue at
