De Beaumont, E.T.A. Hoffman and “Mother Goose”;  narrated by Julie Andrews and Peter Schickele;  and played by many fine musicians including The 3 Flute Moms and pianists Kenneth Cooper and Gena Raps.  Unlike the other recordings sold on this web site, this recording contains no music written by Peter Schickele, but he does some fine narrating and even sings Jingle Bells a cappella.
