‘Lodowick Muggleton Was Also Included’: 1652–1658
Pages 24

The Muggletonians loved their songs. The eighteenth century was the golden age for the production of what they called their ‘Divine Songs’ which they set to tunes of the day. Before they acquired their own premises in 1869, they would find a corner in a pub in which to celebrate their faith in song. Other people in the pub would hear a group of people patriotically singing ‘Hearts of Oak’ or ‘Rule Britannia’, but the words were their own.
