The Star (Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star). Composed by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart (1756-1791). Arranged by Paul Carey. For SA choir and piano. Janet Galvan Roots & Wings Series. Concert. Octavo. Published by Roger Dean Publishing (LO.15-2719R).
Now commonly known as "Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star," Jane Taylor's poem "The Star" was famously set to music by Mozart in his variations on "Ah vous dirai-je, maman." With clever, astronomy-based verses that create a fun, singable version of the tune, Paul Carey's substitution of a parody text by an unknown author offers a perfect opportunity to collaborate with language arts and science teachers while teaching a classic melody.
