Quick Overview

This piece takes the audience on a musical journey and introduces the students to the term quodlibet, which refers to a piece of music that combines several different melodies in counterpoint. During this musical journey you will hear: A-Tisket A- Tasket, Rain Rain Go Away, The Muffin Man, Shortin' Bread, Shoo Fly Don't Bother Me and Mary Had a Little Lamb. These songs are familiar, but the arrangement by Joseph Compello is unique and enjoyable.
