Published by: Australian Music Centre — 1 facsimile score (19p. -- A4 (portrait))
Duration: 15 min.
1. The Mystery of the Missing Bone -- 2. The First Star -- 3. Kookaburra -- 4. Mermaid -- 5. Keep the Beat -- 6. Jibber Jabber (On the Ning, Nang, Nong).
First performance 2014. National Kodaly Conference ('Jibber Jabber' only)
These songs were all written for Ascham School at various times and for certain occasions.
Nos 1, 2 & 4 were originally written for early primary school and the others for years 3 to 6. Nos. 1 and 2 also have some speaking parts and no. 3 needs an imitation of a Kookaburra!
'Keep the Beat' (No 5), also has parts for primary school string ensemble and/or band. This can be mixed and matched – strings 1st, then choir, then all together. The piano should always be used. (Parts for this song are available separately).
Text for 'The Kookaburra' by Frank Halliwell; 'Mermaid' by Walter de la Mare ; for 'Jibber Jabber' by Spike Milligan. Others by the composer.
Composed over a five year period from 2009 to 2014
