As Pete Seeger says in the introduction to Rise Up Singing says, there was a time when singing was a part of everyday life. Rise Up Singing was compiled to help bring song back into our lives, and especially to bring singing more strongly into the movement for social change. And this is a great songbook for doing just that: 278 pages of songs to fit every type of occasion and theme. The section headings include Ballads and Old Songs, Ecology, Freedom, Golden Oldies, Men, Lullabies, Love, Play, Sea, Spirituals, Women, and Work. There is a subject index, a cultures index, a holidays and festivals index, a musicals index, and a titles index. A wonderful book.
