Sheet Music: Score
The toadstools / composed by Freddie Hill ; words by Emil Campion.
by Fred Hill (1988)
The opening and closing segments are a kind of "Devil's Motet" recalling my undergraduate studies of Palestrina. The central section is more of a 1930's jazz-cabaret style. There is an ironic quote from Fats Waller's "Honeysuckle Rose" in reference to the phallus-shaped Stinkhorn.
