The playful side of versatile British composer, conductor, arranger and performer Richard Rodney Bennett comes to the fore with this delightful setting of seven nonsensical poems by Mervyn Peake. It was said of Peake during his lifetime that his serious work was full of humour while his nonsense verse was full of philosophy. This duality makes his lyrics a superb match for Bennett, a composer who it is impossible to categorise. Composer, performer and arranger Richard Rodney Bennett was internationally respected for his serious music and many award-winning film scores (Murder on the Orient Express, Nicholas and Alexandra) as well as his works for children and his religious pieces. In addition, this markedly versatile musician frequently performed as a jazz pianist and arranger. Nonsense works equally well for students Choruses as well as for adult groups.
