Composed by French master Darius Milhaud in 1932, this collection of humorous children's songs is now available for the first time with English lyrics. At the time they were composed, radio and phonograph technology were causing the primary musical leisure activity to shift from actual music making to listening. Milhaud believed that if amateurs were provided with accessible music, they would be encouraged to continue playing music for recreation, thus reversing the trend. These delightful songs are excellent for young treble choirs in school and community and include: A Little Test, Skipping Song, Reading Lesson, The Luck of the Draw, Miss Spectacles, Mea Culpa, The Monitor Alexander, Deserved Praise, The Argument, The Orchestra of the Obedient Students, The Orchestra of the Mischievous Students, Final Chorus: In Praise of Computers.
