Over the Garden Wall is a collection of thirty-eight children's songs, rhymes and games from England, selected, transcribed and annotated by Dr. Susan Brumfield. Illustrated with rare archival photos from the past, along with the fresh faces of children of today, this book is filled with traditional children's music. Over the Garden Wall includes a CD with field recordings collected in the 1940s, '50s and '60s and new recordings of children from schools in villages, towns and cities throughout the UK.
Second in a series of volumes designed to bring scholarly research and practical application together in one anthology, this book is perfect for use in both home and school. Parents and children will enjoy exploring past, present and future through England's rich heritage of musical play, while teachers will find activities for the classroom. Over the Garden Wall includes historical references for each song, pedagogical indices and suggestions for developing a literacy-based music curriculum.
Over the Garden Wall contains rhymes for skipping rope, counting out and ball-bouncing, singing games and songs just for fun. Ideally suited for teaching musical skills, this collection provides a "vocabulary" of music and play from which children can draw today. Adults and kids of all ages will discover the fun and enjoyment of listening, learning, singing and playing these songs for generations to come.
