Program Notes

The arranger draws on a rich bag of nursery rhyme songs and a fertile imagination to create an exuberant band setting. Snippets of familiar tunes are combined and tumble one into another in an always-surprising musical journey to the whimsical side. Included at Pop Goes the Weasel, I'm a Little Teapot, The Mulberry Bush, Row, Row, Row Your Boat, London Bridge, Ten Little Indians, Merrily We Roll Along, The Farmer in the Dell, and Twinkle Twinkle Little Star.

- Program Note from publisher


Fantasy on Childhood Songs, originally called Nursery Rhymin', was commissioned by the 2002 Northwest Iowa Junior High School Honor Bands and premiered by the Seventh and Eighth Grade Honor Band.
