Songs of Freedom: The James Connolly Songbook

£9.99

Manufacturer: PM Press

Product Information

"Songs of Freedom is a celebration of the life and work of James Connolly, the Irish revolutionary socialist martyred by the British government for his role in the Easter Rising of 1916. It is at once a collection of stirring revolutionary songs and a vital historical document. For the first time in a hundred years, readers will find the original Songs of Freedom, edited by James Connolly and published in New York in 1907, as well as the 1919 Connolly Souvenir program published in Dublin for a concert commemorating Connolly's birth. Both are reproduced exactly as they originally appeared, providing a fascinating glimpse of the workers' struggle at the beginning of the last century. To complete the picture is included the James Connolly Songbook of 1972, which contains not only the most complete selection of Connolly's lyrics but historical background essential to understanding the context in which the songs were written and performed."

Edited by Mat Callahan. PM Press, 2013.
