Songs that are nice, songs that are nasty, songs that are just plain weird. But they all will charm you in one way or another.
There's Britten’s fascinating but unsettling A Charm of Lullabies, a selection from Christopher Robin’s Song Book (Harold Fraser-Simson/Milne) and more. It’s surprising how insightful a 3-year-old can be. Some floral gifts by Ann Carr-Boyd, and a concoction of spells in songs based on three Walter de la Mare poems by Diana Blom. Intertwining the song-sets are sonatas by Johann Christian Bach – tuneful, playful and charming.
