A children's classic not known enough in America
on 30 November 2001
This CD of the Howard Blake music for the Raymond Briggs classic story "The Snowman" should be in every child's collection of favorite music. The main theme is hauntingly beautiful and could create a mood for any child's creative daydreaming. The double bonus of the music alone, or the narrated version that is offered on the CD will whet your appetite for the animated video, which is a veritible feast for the eyes. "The Snowman" and the music by Blake is loved by any who have had the pleasure of knowing it, and this CD will allow many more children (and those who are still young at heart) to discover this treasure.
