100% of 100
The recently rediscovered National Chartist Hymn Book has powerful and poetic lyrics with a spirituality committed to social justice.
Garth takes these passionate hymns and puts tunes to them (the hymn book only had lyrics) to bring alive these fascinating songs that, though written about the events of 1845, seem to have a remarkable relevance to our own society.
They are rousing and thoughtful songs which echo with words such as Raise! Raise the cry! Let all respond; ‘Justice, and pure and equal laws.’ Garth’s hope is that this revival of hymns from the Chartist Movement will bring alive these poetic and challenging hymns for a new generation.

Hail, glorious morn!
Assembled ’neath thy broad blue sky
Daily bread
Sons of poverty
For every thing a time
Men of England
Lo, in thy name
Hark, I hear
How long
God of the poor!
Great God!
Source of good
