"""It Isn't Easy Being a Cuckoo"""" is a fun set of seven pieces that span music history over seven centuries. Many composers have used the minor 3rd call of the cuckoo. The cuckoo bird has been treated badly, though. It has been associated with lunatics and guess what a group of cuckoos is called: an asylum. Too bad, really, because their distinctive song is a favorite musical motive. There are almost 20 minutes of music! The sheet music comes with score and parts and was arranged by John Gibson.
