    Written for unchanged voices, but performance is sung by adults (women sing as written, men an octave below). Singers on Performance CD have light-opera sound that children can relate to. Accompaniments are full-sounding acoustic instruments (nicer than Shawnee's "Pirates of Penzance!") Part of a 1-hour HMS...
