Crossbeats Songbook

Publicity leaflet for songbook
Towards the end of 1967 and beginning of 1968, the Crossbeats song album was published, and sold reasonably well.

The songbook was made possible by John and Brenda Courtie, a young Christian couple living in Bootle.  They put in a lot of time transcribing the songs from tape to sheet music - checking occasionally on chords used.

John Courtie later entered the ministry of the Church of England. At the present time (2002), he is Anglican Rector of 5 villages - Blisworth and Stoke Bruerne with Grafton Regis and Alderton in the diocese of Peterborough UK. Brenda Courtie is currently a member of the Association of Christian Writers

Some of the transcribed songs that they produced were also used in a new youth songbook in 1969 called "Youth Praise 2, and also in Buzz magazine.".
