Five Traditional Rhymes and Five Unison Songs were originally intended for Youth and Children’s Choirs respectively. They are published by Arnold & Company and by Novello & Company, London. Chosen from Iona and Peter Opie: Oxford Book of Nursery Rhymes, these rather quirky little settings (intended for children) are perhaps not as easy as they appear. Precision from the choir and a capable pianist are needed.
Novello (o/p). Three songs have since been published by Leslie Music Supply Inc. – "Bird Scarer's Song", "Anna Elise" and "Three Young Rats".
