What a wonderful CD this is. Folk music lovers out there, you need to buy this CD! I was searching for some decent children's music for our toddler, which we could also enjoy listening to, being tired of the poor quality of singing on most CD's of British children's songs. I also could not bear another journey having to listen to 'Nellie the Elephant' again and again. I came across this CD and the other reviews convinced me to get it. What a great leap forward that was! Our daughter absolutely loves it. She was so delighted to hear the mice and Madeleine the doll singing. But my husband and I love it too. The harmonies are wonderful and the instrumentals superb. Amazing that just 2 people can play so many instruments (accordian, bagpipes, fiddle, guitar,...). Sandra Kerr and John Faulkner are just oozing musicality. If you are choosing this for your child then I would advise you to show them a few episodes of Bagpuss first (see YouTube or get the DVD). This will ensure that they appreciate this CD to the full. My only gripe is that the version of "Ploughman ploughman, plough me a field" on this CD is not as nice as the original version, which you can hear on the DVD or on YouTube - the Mouse Mill episode). The best purchase I have made in years.
