Classical Kids does it again! Susan Hammond's award-winning series teaches music history and appreciation through stories of famous composers and musical periods. This latest release focuses on early music--medieval and Renaissance pieces accompany a compelling tale narrated by Oscar winner Jeremy Irons. On a search for a unicorn whose song will cure their ailing mother, two vivacious children meet Merlin, who tells them about early European music and gives them a peep into the future of Western music. No child (or adult) could fail to be captured by Irons's intense, magical delivery. The children delight, and the modal period music completes the spell. E.K.D.
