A Second Book of Bird Songs for Children (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from A Second Book of Bird Songs for Children Keenly appreciative of the kind words which have greeted the publication of twenty-five Bird Songs for Children, the author is encouraged to add to the list of birds therein treated, this second volume of twenty songs. With the woods, fields and marshes overﬂowing with suggestive melodies and calls which challenge the musical ear and creative. Imagination, there is no reason why we should not have songs about every bird which has a characteristic song or call - note. Miss Kitty Cheatham writes: Some day we will have great inspirational music when composers go to the right sources for their inspiration. To what source should we go for inspiration as well as actual thematic material for the composition of Bird Songs for Children but the birds themselves, for where else in nature can we find music so like our own both in rhythm and melodic form?
