Here’s a new record on Trunk by Carl Orff who is more famously known as the composer of ‘Carmina Burana’ (theme from ‘The Omen’) and Gunild Keetman (I don’t know who that is). It’s an important archival reissue which has been out of print since 1958. On the album you get 85 miniature tracks (48 on the LP) of miniature human beings singing and talking and being genuinely creepy.
Orff has written a massive selection of simple pieces and rounds, often based on existing nursery rhymes, which are simple enough to be performed by children as educational exercises, and the recordings of those are collected here for your listening convenience. The instrumental pieces are especially enjoyable but not quite as creepy as the vocal numbers. If you like nursery rhymes or nursery crimes then this is the record for you!
