Sheet Music: Score
There was a man lived in the moon : 20 traditional nursery rhymes / arranged by Andrew Ford.
by Andrew Ford (2015)
These arrangments vary in instrumentation. Most are for one singer with two or three players and none is for the same combination of instruments, so in addition to being a set of nursery rhymes, the piece as a whole is an introduction to instruments of the orchestra. Individual songs can be performed in any order.
