Notes & Reviews:

At a time when children are bombarded with images that leave nothing to the imagination, it feels right as musicians to play a role in the centuries-old oral tradition of storytelling; listening to stories lets children make their own images. The Philadelphia-based children's music and storytelling troupe Auricolae has performed for thousands of students throughout the Northeast and features several works commissioned for the ensemble in their debut recording. These settings breathe new life into timeless stories, and are engaging on several levels that are entertaining for the adult listener as well as for children.
