's Six Songs About Beasts
is a work for Unison Voices and Piano Accompaniment, featuring six individual songs about dinosaurs, pigs, snails, penguins, Biblical Mokes and Man.
Jacob was a highly revered composer for wind instruments and writer of instructional books. His Six Songs About Beasts is a fantastic collection, often humourous, that sounds great with the Unison Voices combining so well with the Piano Accompaniment. The joy of these six songs is that the music captures the distinct traits and characteristics of each individual animal so brilliantly, using all the techniques available to represent, in music, each beast, until finally a celebration of man.
