This pamphlet, “Songs of Faith, Nature and Comradeship”, is part of the Workers’ Educational Association archive, held at the TUC Library. Published by William Morris Press, 1927, it contains a collection of traditional songs and hymns on pastoral and fraternal themes, including classics such as ‘Jerusalem’ and ‘Auld Lang Syne’.

From the frontispiece:

Sing them upon the sunny hills,
When days are long and bright,
And the blue gleam of shining rills
Is loveliest to the sight:
Sing them along the misty moor,
Where ancient hunters roved,
And swell them thro’ the torrent’s roar,
The songs our fathers loved.”
- Felicia Hemans
