So comrades, come rally,/ And the last fight let us face: in honor of May Day, can any of you prisoners of starvation tell me where can I find an audio recording of Orwell's "Beasts of England"?

Have you checked out this site? It's a pretty comprehensive collection of all things Orwellian and, for bonus irony points, it's Russian.

It seems that "Beasts of England" was changed to "Beasts of the World" in the filmed version and has slightly different lyrics, perhaps to appease the CIA. A version of the song is available on the soundtrack here.

I bought a recording of the book a long time ago where it was sung, but don't remember the narrator.
