ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Not just another compilation of sung nursery rhymes, this CD is a through-composed tone poem of sounds and songs. The instrumental wizardry of Richard Durrant and the multi-faceted vocal stylings of Paul Austin Kelly spin an enticing web of enchantment using well-known rhymes such as Jack and Jill and Hey Diddle Diddle, as well as the less familiar Aiken Drum and Who Has Seen the Wind? Kelly and Durrant interweave traditional and original settings in this musical journey from daylight to darkness and back again.

The accompanying booklet contains lyrics to all the songs, so that children may follow along as they listen to the music. The cover artwork is once again by the award-winning children's illustrator Korky Paul.

Paul Austin Kelly is an internationally renowned tenor and has performed with
many of the world's most prestigious opera companies including the Royal Opera at Covent Garden, La Scala in Milan, the Metropolitan Opera in New York and the Glyndebourne Festival. He has made numerous guest appearances on BBC Radio and is an accomplished guitarist and trumpet player.

Richard Durrant is renowned for his extraordinary guitar playing, equally at home with traditional folk and pop music as well as the classical repertoire. He is also an accomplished music composer, producer and recipient of a 2002 Daily Mail Golden Jubilee Award, presented by HRH Prince Charles.

Winifred Leonard

First concept album for kids.
This may well be the first concept album for kids but it is definitely something new; a kind of Alice In Wonderland-type journey through a medieval English forest with folk songs and a bit of rock! The songs are based on nursery rhymes but the music and arrangements are sophisticated and fresh. Tenderwood is food for the imagination. Kelly and Durrant are a top-notch team.

It is BRILLIANT!  Truly an incredible piece of work.
Just heard "Through Tenderwood."

I am not just blowing smoke here.  It is BRILLIANT!  Truly an incredible piece of work.  I'd go so far as to say it's the best in the "Walking Oliver" children's series.  Just remarkable!

Please, guys! Make it so my name comes out when you play the Tenderwood music backwards.  (I have to find some way of getting my name connected to this incredible piece of work so that I'll be able to brag in pubs.)  You guys just aced it.  Just an incredible demonstration of your talent.  This is going to be the one that launches Walking Oliver into the stratosphere!  

Way to go!

this cd is very good for children but it would be nice to have lyrics as well this way they can sing it.
