Product description

Good old-fashioned nursery songs
Traditional nursery rhymes and children's songs in new, stylish arrangements using traditional instruments of the past. Lovely tunes, innocent words, and not a synthesiser or artificial drum machine to be heard - just high quality music making.
All your favourites are here, from 'Sing a song of sixpence' to 'The grand old Duke of York'. Some of the songs, such as 'Ding dong bell' have been given more sophisticated treatment than others, and last several minutes, with repeats, and instrumental solos, just as they may have been performed hundreds of years ago. Some of them are so simple: just a solo voice and around 15 seconds of music! Some are nonsense songs, such as 'Hey diddle diddle' some of them, such as 'The grand old Duke of York' or 'Humpty Dumpty' provide historical commentary on events of the past. Some of them are both. Often the tunes are as memorable as the words: 'Over the hills and far away' is given a particularly beautiful rendition and its haunting melody will stay in your mind long after the music has moved on.
We have included several action songs, such as 'Here we go round the mulberry bush', some purely cheerful numbers such as 'Aiken drum' and some gentle, lyrical songs such as 'Lavender's blue'. We have also included a handful of less familiar songs, where we thought that the sheer beauty of their words or music demanded it, and we hope that you will enjoy listening to this collection of nursery rhymes as much as we enjoyed making it!
