Mother Goose, Father Gander Music CD by Peter Weatherall

This is a CD of ninety nursery rhymes I have set to music. The first forty five are traditional "mother goose" nursery rhymes which I remember my mother reciting to me - I have tried to choose ones where I cannot recall any established traditional melody that goes with them, and have set them to original music. The second forty five "father gander" nursery rhymes are ones for which I have composed both words and music - hopefully in keeping with the Mother Goose tradition.

As with my other children's music, the mother goose nursery rhymes have steadily been making their appearance, ably illustrated by Hidemi, on our TV shows over the past couple of years. And the Father Goose nursery rhymes appear in my "Reach for the Stars" series singing competition - these music videos appear on our Penguin TV and Jumping Jellybeans TV DVDs.

This music album is included on my collected set of mp3 albums.
