Early Hymn Books etc

Below is illustrated a few of the hymn books that were around in the early 1960s and which were used at St Leonard's church (Songs of Faith, Crusade Songs and 20th Century Hymns).  They give a sense of the church music background of groups like the crossBeaTs .  See also the St Leonard's 'home-made' songbook 'Youth Sings'.

  "Songs of Faith" - the song book for the Mission to Bootle (1959?)    
  "Crusade Songs" - the song book for the Billy Graham Crusade of 1961 in Manchester    
  "20th Century Hymn Tunes" - note that these are Anglican writers, and there is a High Church element in some songs - which we eschewed
