Because All Men Are Brothers

Because All Men Are Brothers
Words by Tom Glazer
Melody by J.S. Bach ("Passion Chorale")
Rise Up Singing chapter: Unity, p.238

This is the first video in my project to learn and record all the songs in the "Rise Up Singing" songbook, so that everyone can learn the tunes and teach the songs. Priority will be given to hard-to-find songs over still popular songs, although exceptions will be made for songs I just happen to like best. I'm not sure if there's trouble with copyright law ahead. Let's hope not.

I just found out that Annie Patterson, who co-edited Rise Up Singing, recorded and sells CDs of these songs here at . So go check it out. You can buy the set, or individual CDs at 12$ each. I'm going to keep trying to do it song by song though, so stay tuned.

Quick addendum: I mention that some of the songs are not on any albums, but now that I think about it, that's probably not true of any of the songs on Rise Up Singing. The ones that are hard to find are mostly just hard to find because the albums they're on are rare these days. And they're all on Annie Patterson's teaching CDs too.
