Thread Name: Lyr Req/Add: Orchestra Song - German Lyrics?
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Orchestra Song
You mentioned you had found "The Orchestra Song" in a 1974 book, "Songs for a New Generation..." What I'd like to track down, though, is the book current in the early Fifties that had not only the Orchestra Song (hope I'm referring to the same thing -- Clarinet goes doodle doodle doodle doodle-det) but also another song about the Skena River, and many other part songs for children.
I've just been asked to cover someone's maternity leave for a music class and this book would be perfect -- as I'm sure it's long out of copyright I can copy it and they'll never know how old the songs are that I'm teaching them! Can you help?
(Best place for used books, I find, is www.bookfinder.com, which lists Amazon as well as many "normal" used bookshops.)
Many thanks for whatever leads you can give me.
