Originally recorded in the 1950s by EMI, these 35 charming, sprightly folk songs were picked by Langstaff for the ease with which children can sing them--and the fun they have doing it. Each is placed in its own vivid jewel-box setting, some with full orchestra, others unaccompanied or sung to simple dulcimer or piano. Most of the tracks were produced by legendary Beatles producer George Martin, the settings created by British composer Ron Goodwin.
