In days gone by there was a land where the nights were always dark, and the sky spread over it like a black cloth, for there the moon never rose, and no star shone in the obscurity.' - This is the opening of the story 'The Moon' by the Brothers Grimm, set to music by Carl Orff. This book tells the story of how four young fellows steal the moon from a foreign kingdom, how it ends up in the world below and how it comes to pass that the dead become restless and awake from their sleep because of the moonlight. And soon there is as much activity in the world below as it is on earth until Saint Peter steps in. . . He sees to it that peace returns and that the moon takes its rightful place in the sky.This picture book, with atmospheric illustrations by Annegret Fuchshuber, reproduces the story as told by the Brothers Grimm, together with the complete libretto by Carl Orff. The accompanying CD contains not only the fairy story narrated by Godela Orff but also Orff's version with the Leipzig Radio Choir and Symphony Orchestra.For children aged 6+.Awarded the Deutscher Musikeditionspreis 2003.Included in the list of recommended educationally worthy picture books 2004 of the 'Gesellschaft fur Jugend- und Sozialforschung' (GJSF) [Society for Youth and Social Research].
