"The exuberant diversity of Victorian social life captured in music, words and pictures"--Back cover."This unique and delightful songbook brings together the most popular of the old favourites, songs that sent a whole generation of men and women flocking to the music halls and entertained them at home around the family piano. The book, compiled and presented by modern music hall artistes, is meant to be used. Each song is reproduced from original Victorian songsheets, with piano accompaniment and words large enough to be read by a fair-sized gathering behind the piano stool; each page is illustrated and decorated in the elaborate graphic styule so beloved by the Victorians; and the whole collection of 60 songs, beautifully printed and finished with a register ribbon, is sewn and bound so that it will stay open in use and last through many a raucous sing-song"--Dust jacket.
