New song on the volunteers for the Pope

The ballad concerns the raising of an Irish Brigade by Archbishop Paul Cullen to fight in Italy for Pius IX and the Papal States against Garibaldi and the Italian patriots. The Brigade was raised in 1860. First line reads: Arouse, you Romans of tribulation, it threatens both your/ Church and Creed.
