ABC Community Music

The Australian Broadcasting Company produced a series of community music books around 1930.

Such sing-a-longs were very popular, and No.1 includes such favorites as 'Aloha-oe', 'Hi-Ho the Merrio', 'March of the Men of Harlech' and 'Clementine'. We have a number of these volumes in our collections.
