Although I have sung all my life in church, school, university, and seminary, I am familiar with only a few of the songs in this book. For that reason I believe this collection should be saved. Some titles are: Gaudeamus Igitur, God Save The King, Rule Britannia, The Wearing of the Green, The Maple Leaf Forever, The Star-Spangled Banner, Hail Columbia, John Brown's Body, La Marseillaise, Russian National Anthem, A Capital Ship, Green Grow the Rashes O, Drink to Me Only, My Bonnie, Vive L'Amour, The Little Brown Jug, Funiculi Funicula, and many, many more. 360 pp. with indices of titles and first lines.
