In the days when serious composers wrote good music for children to play, sing or just to appreciate, many minor classics were penned. Mussorgsky’s “The Nursery” is such and the British songs here, settings of masterpieces of prose by A.A. Milne and Kipling among others, are also of the highest standard, one or two having become ingrained in the memories of a generation.
