McGrath Songs of hardship and oppression??? (30) RE: Songs of hardship and oppression??? 19 May 98

There is a nice slim volume titled;
The Easter Rising In Song and Ballad:
by Desmond C. Graves;
ISBN 0 900707 51 8 (hard back); ISBN 0 900707 57 7 (paper back)
Published in 1980 by Stanmore Press Ltd. for
Workers' Music Association
236A Westbourne Park Road
London W11

It contains over thirty songs which are arranged such that you can compare the before, during and after of the rising. Songs that reflected the feelings of those who were inspired to revolution; the description of the rising; the execution of the leaders etc. and shows some interesting contrasts and points of view about the 1916 Rising.
